Title: At the nest
Artist: Chirkov Alexey
Size: 10.5x7x4
Size (inches): 4x2.75x1.5
Price : $1295 SOLD!


Well-known Fedoskino artist Alexey Chirkov is the creator of this gorgeous box. Alexey is fond of owls, and he has already created a series of works dedicated to these enigmatic birds of prey. This is another work from this series. Here Master picked up an unusual shape of the box! The work is called "At the nest", and shows Mother Owl with their nestling.
The scene is masterfully drawn. The evening sky shimmers dramatically as it has been painted over silver powder. More brilliance and luster come from pieces of mother-of-pearl that shine brightly with glimmering blue, green and violet tones in the lower part of this box. Gold paint is used to detail the trees, the owls, the nest and a lot of other details1
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, Fedoskino and the year of 2008.
