This large square box shows the life of fictional little men whose growth is less than grass stalks. Often the scenes of these compositions looks fantastic, this is the world of fairy tales. Of course, advanced collectors will see in these compositions variations of the works of a well-known artist from Mstera, Daniil Molodkin. But this box is signed by another artist, and each artist makes his contribution to any hand-painted work.
The work is called "Gnomes" and show fictional little men surrounded by tall grasses and plants. On this box we can we can see one of the little men watching a UFO through a telescope, in the porthole of which you can see an alien.
The box was painted by Kapralova Galina, a prominent artist from Kholui.Egg-tempera paint is the main medium used to paint this composition. The palette is based in greens,blues and reds that make complementary combinations throughout the scene. Gold is used to highlight and detail the clothes of the Gnomes.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The interior of the box is red, while the exterior is covered with back lacquer. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests flat. Golden ornaments frames the composition and wraps around the side of the box.
Upon completing the work on this piece the artist writes the title "Gnomes", Kholui, and signs her name at the bottom of a scene.
