Price : $1595 SOLD!


This charming box has been painted by talented Fedoskino artist, Alexey Chirkov. The work is called "Forest Fairy-Tale" and shows a family of hares in winter forest. We can see father, mother and a baby hares here.On the background we can see precisely painted winter forest and several small birds painted in gold. The scene is painted in the realistic manner, and reflects the artist's high skill of execution!
Through successfully combined colors and entrancing details, Chirkov enchants the viewer while contemplating this scene. Various shades of blue oils predominate here. With the help of silver powder used as an under layer for this scene the artist fills the light blue, misty background with a magic glow. The artist inlays a piece of mother-of-pearl into the skies painted in the background. The use of mother-of-pearl, silver and gold paint brings an incredible amount of light from the piece! Painted on the paper-mache box, the composition is framed by a line of gold paint. Black lacquer is used to paint the outside and red lacquer is used to paint the inside of the box. On the box's sides the artist has painted a whimsical pattern in the form of gold and silver scrolls and dots. A hinge is located to the left of the composition, and the box rests on the four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, the title and the year of 2011 on the interior of the base of the box.
