Title: Tale of Tsar Saltan
Artist: Kuzmenko Galina
Size: 15x13x2.5
Size (inches): 6x5.25x1
Price: $375 $340

This beautiful piece of Russian artistry was composed by the talented Kuzmenko Galina from the village of Palekh. Her works are typical and quality representatives of authentic Palekh technique.
Here we can see a scene from the adventurous fairy-tale entitled, "The Tale of Tsar Saltan".
Sent adrift some years ago, Gvidon knew in his heart that eventually the truth would come out. The scene painted on the box's lid shows Princess Swan on a bank of the Sea and the Thirty-three Warriors with their Uncle Chernomor coming out of it.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work.
Golden filigree decoration frames the lid's artistry as well as the sides of the base. A hinge has been fastened to the left part of the top of the composition. The box rests flat. It is signed with the artist's name and village of Palekh.
