Title: Mermaid
Artist: Knyazev Sergey
Size: 20.5x7.5x2.5
Size (inches): 8x3x1
Price : $1950 SOLD!


This originally shaped box is a creation of a talented artist Sergey Knyazev. The work is called "Mermaid" and shows a mermaid underwater. Mermaid is enjoying the games playing with fishes. The scene is painted in between the elegant corals under the sea. Mermaid just found a large pearl, that she holds in a left hand. Her head is adorned with beautiful garland consisted of corals and sea shells.
To create a magic, aquatic atmosphere the artist has painted the entire scene on mother-of-pearl inlays that shine with a variety of undertones raging from aquamarine to violet and other blue tones. Gold metal dust is spread along the borders of the lid. Some elements of the composition are crafted three-dimensionally and this , no doubt, only additing a dept to this composition. We count 3 large pieces of mother-of-pearls that the artist has used. Of corse, the best one is the tail of mermaid, which comes out of the box!!! Godsend idea!!!
The box's exterior is covered with very pale, violet lacquer mixed richly with gold dust. For additional decoration this pale, violet background is studded with silver veins.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Its interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box rests flat. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, the year of 2010 and the village of Fedoskino on the lid's interior.
