Title: Country of Toys
Artist: Danchenko Uliana
Size: 6.5x5x5.5
Size (inches): 2.5x2x2.25
Price : $695 SOLD!


This charming box is a creation of Uliana Danchenko. It is entitled "The Country of Toys", and shows a little girl who looks dreamily at her toys and invents a plot of a new game.
The work is drawn in the cartoonish style, using bright tones of oil paints. The painting covers the whole surface of the box's exterior, except the box's exterior bottom that is covered with light grey paint. The girl's necklace and her earrings are composed of tiny silver metal beads. Tiny gold metal beads decorate the petals of the big flower drawn behind the girl. These shining metal beads adorn the box's exterior and add a three-dimensional look to the depicted scene. At the bottom of the scene painted on the box's lid the artist has written Fedoskino, the title, and her name. On the box's exterior bottom she has written the following verse written by herself:

"Dream has fallen on the eyelashes,
Let I see this night lying among the pillows,
The country of animated toys,
All children know about this country,
They fly there every night. "

The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged, and the box rests on a flat bottom.
