Title: Russian Fairy-tales
Artist: Kuzmenko Galina
Size: 10x8x7.5
Size (inches): 4x3.25x3
Price: $495 $399

This five-sided casket has been painted by talented artist Kuzmenko Galina from the village of Palekh. The box's lid and all its four sides show the scenes from Russian folk fairy-tales!
On a lid we can see Snoowmaiden and Lel (from Snowmaiden fairy-tale).On a front side Flying carpet.On a right side- Tale of Frog Princess. On a left side-Fire-Bird.
A broad spectrum of colors is used to create this highly detailed world. The artist leaves the sky black, which is one of Palekh's stylistic trademarks, but does not mean that the scene is taking place at night. Gold paint and aluminum paints are used to enhance the life and brightness of the scenes.
The composition on the top is framed with a golden dot ornament. The base of the box is decorated with gold filigree patterns accented with aluminum paint.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The exterior of the box is painted with black lacquer while the interior is completed with red lacquer. The lid is hinged from the top of the casket, and the box rests on two platforms.
Under the composition on the lid the artist has wrote her name, title- Russian Fairy-tales and the village of Palekh.
