Title: Feeding Birds
Artist: Aldoshkina Yelena
Size: 8.5x7x2
Size (inches): 3.5x2.75x0.75
Price : $950 SOLD!


Yelena Aldoshkina of Fedoskino is the artist who painted this beautiful miniature. Aldoshkina is very popular in the world of Fedoskino lacquer art and we are very proud to present this piece. An alluring palette grants passage into the exquisite artistry composed here. Uniform in design, and precise in its profound execution, Aldoshkina offers us a unique piece of Russian lacquer artistry.
Depicted on the box is an image of two girls dressed in ancient Russian clothing feeding birds. This scene is permeated with a sense of peace and tranquility.
Aldoshkina has managed to create a lucid and precise composition on the tiny surface of the casket. She displays filigree skill in decorating small objects with amazing precision. Ultra-fine brushwork creates the characters' individualized and expressive faces, their multicolored skillfully detailed clothing, and incomparably beautiful landscape of Russian countryside. Aldoshkina carefully works out forms, giving substance to her figures, clearly outlining their silhouettes.
With the help of artistic means the artist has managed to accentuate the charm and youth of the characters and their elevated and romantic mood. The composition is mostly painted in delicate blue tones. Gold paint is used to paint the birds, the girls' earrings and beads, the flowers depicted in the foreground and to detail the girl's costumes. It makes this piece as striking as it is. This painting by Aldoshkina is based on clearly outlined shapes; generalization is combined here with the elaboration of small details. It is notable for its beauty, lyricism and melodiousness.
The scene is framed with a thick gold line. The similar gold line wraps around the upper part of the small platform on which the box rests. The sides of the box are decorated with dozens of gold leaves.
The box is constructed from quality paper-mache. Black lacquer mixed with gold dust is used to paint its exterior while traditional red lacquer completes its interior. The lid is hinged from the left of the composition, and the box rests on a small platform. The work is signed and dated (2005) by the artist on the lid's interior.
