Title: In the Forest
Artist: Chirkov Alexander
Size: 12.5x9.5x2.5
Size (inches): 5x3.75x1
Price : $880 SOLD!


This box is a stunning creation of one of the young and talented Fedoskino artists Alexander Chirkov. In the foreground the artist has painted the basket of mushrooms left by a mushroomer on the sunny glade while in the background the picturesque country landscape is depicted.
The work is drawn in the painting style of World-known Master Sergey Kozlov who has created a series of boxes dedicated to the theme of Mushrooms and who is a teacher of Chirkov. (The son of Sergey Kozlov—Alexander is an ex-classmate and friend of Alexander Chirkov ).
The landscape painted in the background is drawn in subdued blue and grey tones, whereas the basket painted over lustrous gold metal leaf shines brightly attracting the viewer's attention at first sight. Gold metal leaf also shines through some of the mushrooms while the others are painted over silver metal paint or drawn entirely in oils. Silver paint is also used to highlight the landscape, and fill the scene with an almost unnoticeable sparkle.
The scene is framed with a wide, brilliant gold ribbon.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer was used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes its interior. A hinge is fastened to the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, the year of 2007 and the title ("In the Forest").
