Title: By the pike's will
Artist: Zotov Nikolay
Size: 11x7.5x17
Size (inches): 4.25x3x6.75
Price : $2250 SOLD!


We always proud to present the works of the prominent artist Nikolay Zotov. Leading Fedoskino artist, whose creations are displayed in each catalog of the Russian lacquer art, this artist has a peculiar style, and very often his boxes are originally shaped, that is why it is always easy to recognize his unique creations!
This interesting installation has also a unique shape! The theme of this box is the story of Emelya or By the Pike's will.
On this installation the artist depicts several scenes of the tale:
On the front side- Emely is catching the pike in a river by a bucket.
On the right side- Emely is driving the sledge without horses, only using magical words:
By the pikes will, by my desire...
On the back side and inside the box--there are beautiful winter landscape scenes, on the left side- lady with two buckets with a shoulder-yoke.
Like in most of his works, here the artist has created a multi-layered composition to get a three-dimensional effect. Zotov also has put several pieces of mother-of-pearl on the front lid.
The installation is constructed from paper-mache and epoxy rosin, painted by oils. The work is signed with the artist's name.
The lid is hinged.
