Title: Tale of Fairy Tales
Artist: Yastrebov Oleg
Size: 15.5x11x14
Size (inches): 6x4.25x5.5
Price : $1450 SOLD!


Oleg Yastrebov continues to amaze his amateurs with his brilliant works. This is one more his original creation. The work is called “The Fairy-Tale”, and shows some key moments from the Arabic fairy-tale. In this tale the poor lad managed to marry the daughter of padishah.
The box's exterior (except the exterior bottom) is covered with compositions beautifully drawn in Yastrebov's distinctive style and sprinkled with magical bits of glitter. The faces of his characters, in particular, are quite popular among collectors perhaps because of the child-like innocence they seem to convey. Gold and silver powders used as an underlayer for the oils, and bright green and violet spangles spread throughout the compositions, shimmer beautifully, giving an effect that, unfortunately, is difficult to convey in a photograph.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box's exterior that is free from painting is covered with black lacquer while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the top of the composition painted on the box's lid, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, the title and the year of 2007.
