Title: Snow-covered Village
Artist: Kirsanov Sergey
Size: 13.5x7.5x2.5
Size (inches): 5.25x3x1
Price : $795 SOLD!


Sergey Kirsanov from the village of Fedoskino is an expert in painting landscapes. In his works he doesn't exaggerate the modest beauty of Russian countryside, and finds a special charm in ramshackle peasant houses, small wooden churches, and dirty village roads. This demonstrates his sincere love to his native land.
Here the artist depicts the view of neglected wooden church in a Russian village. The churches became useless during the Soviet Union epoch when many churches and cathedrals were closed as the Soviet regime tried to eradicate religion.
White, gray and light brown tones suitable for reproduction of a dull winter day are predominate here. A large piece of mother-of-pearl is set into the whole area of the sky to create a more realistic view.
The scene is framed with so called "scan patterns" composed of tiny shapes hand punched from gold metal sheets and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. The remaining edge of the lid as well as the sides of base of the box are painted using the unique dye-resist method. The box is dipped into a mixture of colored oils, water, and paint thinner and then removed to create the black stone-like design you see here.Traditional red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom.
The box is signed by the artist.
