Title: Hunter riding his Steed
Artist: Shavirin Boris
Size: 15x14x4
Size (inches): 6x5.5x1.75
Price : $485 SOLD!


Boris Shavirin from the village of Fedoskino painted this magnificent box featuring a hunting scene. The hunter rides the mighty steed that races across the wide field covered with white snow, accompanied by two dogs. Judging by the hunter's rich costume we may suppose that he is the member of the tsar's hunting staff. It's known that in ancient Rus the Tsar had his personal troop of hunters who delivered game for him.
The box is a gorgeous piece of Fedoskino realism. Shavirin could perfectly reproduce intensity of movement, capture animal nature of the steed and the dogs, and express the hunter's elated mood.
The landscape is painted in white tones suitable for depiction of a winter scene, whereas the steed and the hunter's figure are painted in brown and red tones.
The oval scene is framed with very beautiful filigree patterns. The same patterns wrap around the box's sides. The edges of the lid are also decorated with original gold ornamentation.
Black lacquer covers the exterior of the box. The box's interior is traditionally red.
The elegantly shaped box is made out of pressed paper. It has a hinge from the top of the composition and rests on a flat bottom. The box is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and year 2010.
