Price : $2790 SOLD!


We always proud to present the works of the prominent artist Nikolay Zotov. He ranks as one of the best contemporary Masters in Fedoskino, whose creations are displayed in each catalogue on the Russian lacquer art. This artist has a peculiar style, and very often his boxes are originally shaped, that is why it is always easy to recognize his unique creations.
This interesting installation has also a unique shape! The theme of this box is E.T.A. Goffman's Christmas tale “"The Nutcracker". The plot of this tale is familiar to anyone, as it is one of the most popular children's tales.
The story tells about adventures of a little girl during the Christmas night. All her toys became alive and started speak like people. Her favorite toy, the Nutcracker, became her suitor and defender from the Mouse King.
In the composition the artist depicts the main characters of the tale- the Nutcracker, a girl Marie and the Mouse King.
Like in most of his works, here the artist has created a multi-layered composition to get a three-dimensional effect.
The installation is constructed from paper-mache and epoxy rosin, painted by oils. The work is signed with the artist's name and the village of Fedoskino.
The box's exterior is covered with white oils and decorated with gold ornamentation. Its interior is covered with light grey oils. The box's exterior bottom imitates the white marble (tiny light grey veins are scattered against the white background). The lid is hinged. The box is constructed from paper-mache.
