Artist: Borisov Andrey
Size: 10.5x13x2.5
Size (inches): 4x5x1
Price : $850 SOLD!


This marvelous original work of Andrey Borisov features a scene from the Russian folk tale "Ivan Tsarevich and the Grey Wolf". The tale tells about the adventures of the Prince Ivan Tsarevich and his friend, the Grey Wolf, a magician. The Wolf ate the horse of Ivan Tsarevich and to redress a wrong, he helped Ivan in several quests: to get the Firebird, to get the horse with the golden mane, and to get the beautiful princess.
On this composition we can see Ivan Tsarevich hugging the wolf. The beautiful forest landscape is painted on the box's background. Green and brown shades oils typical for depiction of a forest setting predominate here.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, the title ("Ivan and the Grey Wolf").
