This brilliant square box was painted by the outstanding Fedoskino artist Sergey Kozlov.The box continues his series of works dedicated to the sights of St.Petersburg.The artist considers this city one of his most favorite places to visit, and he already three times has spent his New Years holidays there!
The composition on a lid shows of a view of the city and the picturesque on Neva river. Here we can see the St. Isaac's Cathedral that is a remarkable monument of Russian architecture. Also we can see the Peter and Paul's Cathedral and the Admiralty. All of this elements are very important architectural landmark in the city outline!
In this work the artist has used his favorite palette composed of various shades of gray oils mixed with aluminum powder. Mother-of-pearl fills the compositions with a magic surrealistic glow. Mother-of pearl can be found in the the water, and as an underlayer for the ships sails and the figures of the seagulls! The domes of the Cathedral, the trees and the banks are headlined with a golden paint.
The box exterior is covered with black lacquer. Its interior is traditionally red.
The box is made out of paper-mache. It has a hinge from the top of the composition and rests on a flat bottom. Signed by Sergey Kozlov, 2022 and the village of Fedoskino.
