Title: Wedding casket
Artist: Kuzmenko Galina
Size: 17x13x19.5
Size (inches): 6.75x5x7.75
Price: $1490 $1100

This large and impressive casket has been created by talented artist Kuzmenko Galina from the village of Palekh. The casket's sides and the top shows the life of a loving couple, meeting, dating, courtships and as a final- The Wedding Party!
! A broad spectrum of colors is used to create this highly detailed world. The artist leaves the sky black, which is one of Palekh's stylistic trademarks, but does not mean that the scene is taking place at night. Gold paint and aluminum paints are used to enhance the life and brightness of the scenes.
All the compositions-the top and the sides, are framed with a golden filigree and silver dots ornaments. The base of the box is decorated with similar rich patterns.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The exterior of the box is painted with black lacquer while the interior is completed with red lacquer. The lid is hinged from the top of the casket, and the box rests on four legs. Under the composition the artist has wrote her name,title (Wedding Casket) and the village of Palekh.
Fine and festive work!
