Title: Out for the Water
Artist: Konovalova Valentina
Size: 17x12x6
Size (inches): 6.75x4.75x2.25
Price: $295

This romantic scene was painted by the talented artist Konovalova Valentina from the village of Palekh. Here she has chosen to depict a scene from the village life, a date.
The box shows a lad and a girl coming from the well. The lad offers the girl to help her carry the buckets. The girl smiles and probably tells the lad village news... or she is flirting and they discuss possible evening date. On the background we can see a stree with village houses, one of them with a smoking chimney.
Gold paint is used to detail the characters' costumes, snow-covered hills and houses in the village. The work is very detailed!
The scene is framed with a nice golden ornament.The box's sides are decorated with similar intricate ornamentation.
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 to the top of the composition, and the box rests on a platform with the six wavy legs.
The work is signed with the artist's name and the village of Palekh.
