Boris Shavirin is the author of this beautiful box showing us the older years. In the left side he has painted the Russian family, a husband, a wife and a daughter, that lived in the eighteenth century in Russia. It must be Sunday morning - people are coming back home after the service in church. Looking at this scene the viewer can easily imagine how the citizens of a big Russian city looked like several centuries ago. To the right-the two ladies are talking, in the middle- the three horsed carriage is sledging the snowing streets.
Light gray tones of oils suitable for depiction of a winter scene predominate here. The costumes of the characters are decorated richly with brilliant gold patterns. Metal gold inlays can be found in the kokoshniks(head-wear) and scarfs of the women and in the skies painted in the foreground. Several mother-of-pearl pieces are inlayed in several parts of composition. They are shining through the costumes of a girl(to the left),women (to the right from center), through the white walls of the church in the middle.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior of the base and red lacquer covers the interior of the box.The sides of the box are covered with a mix of the oils, that imitates the brown marble (stone). The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, and the year of 2013.
