Title: Princess Swan and Prince Gvidon
Artist: Gunina Galina
Size: 20x15.5x3
Size (inches): 7.75x6x1.25
Price: $395

This enchanting piece of authentic Palekh artistry was composed by Galina Gunina (Mochalina,born in 1966). It shows a recognizable scene from Pushkin's Tale of Tsar Saltan.
Here the artist has painted a moment when Prince Gvidon saw Princess Swan coming out from the Sea. The scene features Price Gvidon saving Princess Swan from the evil hawk's attack, which can be seen in the Sea. Gvidon's mom is sit on a barrel on the right hand side.
The composition painted in the traditional Palekh style is very bright and colorful. Gold and aluminum paint applied with a very thin brush helps the artist to accentuate richness of the characters' costumes and splendour of the architecture. Flowers, forest trees and plants on the background are very pretty and detailed!
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers its exterior and red lacquer covers its interior. The exterior is decorated with rich gold ornaments accented with aluminum.
The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests flat. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh and the year of 2016.
