Artist: Belova Margarita
Size: 4x11x2
Size (inches): 1.5x4.25x0.75
Price : $995 SOLD!


This box is a creation of a well-known artist Margarita Belova.
Popularity of Belova is growing and boxes painted by her are in a great demand. Most of all she likes to paint portraits, scenes from peasant life and romantic scenes.
Here is a good example of her artistry! This box is called "New Moon" and shows us a young lady dressed in old traditional Russian “sarafan”(dress), dancing and waving with kerchief. She has a wooden diadem on her head and her braids are coming to unbraid in a minute if she will not stop dancing!
Details of a dress are amazing, the folds of it are professionally painted and transfer the light of a new Moon! The Moon itself is can be seen on the background. The Moon is reflected from the water of a river, painted in silver tone.
The box's exterior is traditionally black, but there are golden leaves decorates the sides of the box. The composition is decorated with silver scan patterns (made of tiny shapes hand punched from silver metal sheets, and then glued to the box manually). The box's interior is traditionally red. The box is constructed from paper-mache. It has a hinge from the left of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the name of the village Fedoskino, the title and the artist's name.
Very professionally painted piece! Highly recommended for any collector!
