This fine box was created by the talented Palekh artist Surkova Tatiana.
The box shows a scene from a peasant life. During the summer all the villagers are waking up early, some of them are start working, some of them are sign and dance...
The work is called "Don't wake up my beloved so early in the morning" and those are the words from a popular Russian folk song.
The composition is painted in the traditional Palekh style, using typical colors: red, blue, white and green. The costumes of the characters, and the surrounding landscape are richly detailed with gold and aluminum paints.
When this piece is turned in the palm of the hand, the gold and aluminum shines like a handful of precious stones!
Composition is framed with golden ornament.
The box is constructed of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint its exterior while red lacquer completes its interior. The box is hinged at the top of the composition and the box is rests on four small round legs. The sides of the box are decorated with beautiful gold filigree designs. The work is signed with the artist's name, title and village and a year 2013.
The box displayed on Expo whick took place in Palekh State Museum in December 2014 and was published in a catalog for this Expo. Catalog will go with a box.
