This attractive box was painted by talented Palekh artist,Zolotareova Natalie.
The box shows several scenes from well-known tale of Princess Frog. In the beginning of the tale old Tsar tells Ivan and his brothers to shoot their arrows blindfolded, into a random direction to find a wife. We can see that on the top of the lid. The arrows of two Ivan's brothers land near the houses of the rich and beautiful maidens. The happy Tsar welcomes his daughters-in-law on the threshold of his palace.The third brother, Ivan, found his arrow at the swamp, we can see that on the back side.And on the front side we can see, that Frog was magic lady...
The scenes are painted in bright tempera paints, and richly detailed with gold and silver paints. Gold and silver paints are also used to decorate the box's exterior with intricate ornaments.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scenes, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, and title.
