Talented Luba Kortikova of Palekh is the artist who painted this interesting scene of three speeding winter troikas.
A lady traveled the snow-covered expanses of Russian countryside sitting in the sledge pulled at high speed by three mighty horses. The horses are painted in white, and blue tempera paints that look so beautiful against the snow background, whick also well painted and imitates swirling snowflakes. Gold paint is used to detail the sledge,the windows of the houses, the characters' costumes, the sun and the horses' harness. Each of "troyka" horses has a small bell over the horse in the middle, so the pedestrians will know that speeding horses are getting closer...
The edges of the lid are adorned with a golden and silver dot ornament, with the inclusions of silver snowflakes. The sides of the box are decorated with more traditional floral ornament.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on four round legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the village of Palekh and 1996.
