Title: Waiting at the sea
Artist: Khomutinnikova Yelena
Size: 13x5,5x2,5
Size (inches): 5x2x1
Price : $850 SOLD!


Famous Fedoskino artist Yelena Khomutinnikova created this oval box. Here she has painted a beautiful romantic girl standing on the seashore. White seagulls are hovering over her head, and her long curling hair is streaming in the wind. She dreams about a handsome man who lives in a faraway country.
The composition is painted in different shades of blue that suit perfectly for depiction of the sea and the sky. The girl's hair, her kerchief and the land painted in the far background are highlighted with gold paint. One piece of mother-of-pearl is inlaid in the area where the biggest seagull is painted, while another one shines brightly through the area located from the left of the girl. The box's exterior is covered with blue oils of different shades that correspond to the chosen theme. The interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box has a hinge from the left of the composition and rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the artist's name, the year of 2004, and the village of Fedoskino.
