Title: Town of Suzdal
Artist: Knyazev Sergey
Size: 9.5x12.5x2.5
Size (inches): 3.75x5x1
Price : $1150 SOLD!


This heavenly piece of exquisite Russian artistry was composed by the talented Sergey Knyazev. The box continues the artist's series of works dedicated to old Russian town, and shows a picturesque view of the town of Suzdal.
Suzdal being one of the oldest Russian towns is an important tourist center nowadays. It features many fine examples of old Russian architecture — most of them churches and monasteries.
The scene is painted in the recognizable Knyazev's style. Large pieces of mother-of-pearl that have bright greenish, pink, lilac, blue and yellow undertones decorate the composition amazingly. Mother-of-pearl creates a sparkle of the water, the sky, the moon and also shines through the architecture. Some areas of the composition as the sky, the grass and the water are painted over silver powder. Gold paint is used to detail the plants and the trees.
The scene is framed with a gold line. The box's exterior is covered with light lilac lacquer, and the interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from quality paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat base. The work is signed, dated (2007) and titled (“Suzdal”) by the artist in gold paints on the lid's interior.
