This brilliant example of Fedoskino realism has been created by a famous Master Boris Shavirin!
The box shows a figure of a falconer admiring his bird. In old Russia falconers had to supply game to the Tsar's court and got some benefits therefore. The background is filled with Russian landscape and two other falconers.
Bright oils are used to paint the costume of the falconer while the background is painted in light grey tones. Falconer's costume is richly decorated with gold paint. Two pieces of mother-of-pearl are shines through the costume of the falconer. The artist has used green mother-of-pearl in the cloth of the falconer!
The composition is framed with a gold ornament.
The sides of the box are richly decorated with a gold 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 box. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests on the four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the year of 2021.
