This interesting work has been created by E. Bonokina. In the center of the composition she depicts all members of a big peasant family gathered at the table, and having a dinner.

This box is painted to glorify the hard labor of Russian peasants, and to show the results their work when the family eats the products grown by themselves.
The drawing is colorful and filled with intricate details. Gold and silver paints are used with great intricacy and delicacy to develop the finer elements in the composition. Gold and silver paints are also used to decorate the box's exterior with beautiful ornaments.
