Title: Making a Snowman
Artist: Tretiakov Viktor
Size: 9.5x13x2
Size (inches): 3.75x5x0.75
Price : $950 SOLD!


This charming box has been painted by Tretyakov from the village of Fedoskino.
It shows children making a snowman. This kind of winter amusement is one of the most favorite in Russia.
For this composition Tretiakov has chosen two main colors- blue and white that are the most suitable for depiction of a winter scene.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
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 piece. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name.
