Title: Forest Church
Artist: Kirsanov Sergey
Size: 6x7.5x2
Size (inches): 2.25x3x0.75
Price : $650 SOLD!


Sergey Kirsanov from the village of Fedoskino is known as a talented landscape painter. Being enchanted with the beauty of modest Russian nature, he created a series of works painted on this theme. These creations are penetrated the feeling of deep love to his native land with its ramshackle peasant houses, small wooden churches, boundless expanses of snow covered fields and evergreen forests.
This small rectangular box shows a small wooden church situated in the forest. Grey and green tones are used here to reproduce the atmosphere of a summer evening. Mother-of-pearl is set into the sky to create a golden glow of the sunset. Gold dust seems to have been sprinkled throughout the scene to add an almost unnoticeable sparkle.
The scene is framed with so called "scan patterns" composed of tiny shapes hand punched from gold metal sheets and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box.
The box's exterior is covered with innumerable number of light grey veins scattered against the black lacquered surface; its interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer. Constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name.
