Price : $695 SOLD!


This splendid box was painted by talented artist Alexey Valyalin of Fedoskino.
Since boyhood, Alexey has been fascinated with the sea. At one point his father took him to the Museum of Art in Feodosia (Crimea) during their vacation to the Black Sea. This art museum was converted from the studio of Ivan Aivazovsky, Russia's greatest seascape artist who was born, raised and eventually finished his career in Feodosia. Since then Alexey is an admirer of Aivazovsky's works. Valyalin is specialized on painting Sea and sea related scenes.
On the box's lid Valyalin painted northern animals-polar bears and seals. They are all painted very accurate and looks very real. The box's exterior is covered with a mixture of a silver and blue colors paint and imitate marble. The composition is framed with little golden rounds, which were cut and painstakingly glued one after another on a box. The same design is decorated the box's sides.
The box's interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer. The box is made of paper-mache. The box's lid is hinged from the top of the scene. The box rests on a wavy platform. The work is signed with the artist's name and Fedoskino.
