Title: Fire bird
Artist: Pichugina Margarita
Size: 8x6.5x2.5
Size (inches): 3x2.5x1
Price : $795 SOLD!


Puchugina Margarita from the village of Fedoskino painted this small oval box. It features an episode from the fairy-tale "Ivan Tsarevich and the Firebird". Here we can see Ivan Tsarevich flying on the magic carpet. In his hand he is holding a cage with the Firebird in it. He intends to fulfill the last errand given him by the old tsar; he must find the beautiful Princess Elena, and bring her to the tsar. More often lacquer miniature artists like to depict Ivan Tsarevich flying on the magic carpet together with Princess Elena.
The scene is painted in different shades of blue and brown. Gold paint details the costume of Ivan Tsarevich. The painting extends on the box's sides.
The exterior of the box is covered with light blue paint, while the interior is traditionally red.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the composition and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the name of the artist, the village of Fedoskino and the year of 2006.
