Title: Chegemsky Canyon
Artist: Tipyakova Tatiana
Size: 9.5x12.5x2.5
Size (inches): 3.75x5x1
Price : $475 SOLD!


This handsome piece of authentic Russian artistry was created by the talented Tatyana Tipyakova of Fedoskino. In this work the artist has managed to express beauty of the forest waterfall. The water cascades down the rocks and into the small river below, which seems to boil from the impact. A multicoloured arc of the rainbow hangs over the splashing water. This is a truly fascinating example of landscape composition.
The waterfall depicted on the box's lid can be found in the Chegemsky canyon situated in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria (a federal republic of Russia located in the North Caucasus.
Forest brown, tan and olive are the oils predominate here. This palette is enhanced by gold metal powder used as an underlayer for the oils. By painting the composition with multiple layers the artist creates massive degrees of texture and perspective. Gold dust is used to fill the scene with a magic sparkle.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The scene is framed with a gold line, while the box's sides are adorned with two parallel gold lines. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title (“Chegemsky Canyon”), and the year of 2008 .
