This very detailed classical Palekh box is a creation of a Honored Artist of Russia, famous Master Nina Bogachova.
For this composition Nina has chosen Russian Folk song "Oh, my sweet heart, take me with you..." telling about a young woman and her boyfriend , who is on a way to go far away, and she is asking him take it with him. On this composition we can see their last talk or farewell...
The palette for this piece contains a wide spectrum of bright and vivid colors. Gold paint, applied with extreme precision, details almost every aspect of the composition. The edges of the lid are decorated with a simple pattern composed of gold beads. More complex gold rolling pattern can be found wrapping around the box's sides.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box and red lacquer is used to paint the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, Palekh and the year of 2017.
