Title: The Forest man
Artist: Maslov Vlad
Size: 22x22x6.5
Size (inches): 8.5x8.5x2.25
Price : $1950 SOLD!


This magnificent Fedokino box is an original master work of Vlad Maslov. Forest spirits is his favorite theme to depict. He has already created such brilliant works as "Baba-Yaga", "the Water Spirit", "Kikimora", "Forest Man" and many others.
This box continues the artist's favorite theme and shows the Forester in his wood house.
The Forester is an spirit of a Forest. He is the Master and keeper of the forest and animals. He looks like an old man dressed in the beast skin as it is vividly shown in this composition. He can change his height and become shorter than grass and taller than trees. Every time Forester meets a traveler in the forest, he starts to frighten him with his terrible laughter. Being alone in the forest, the traveler becomes paralyzed with fear and sometimes loses his way.
The whole surface of the piece is covered with elaborately painted scenes that depict the Forester, birds, insects and rich plant life. The palette is filled with green and brown oils that help to express vividly the forest landscape. Gold and silver powders are mixed with the oils to enrich to color palette.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged. The box rests flat.
The box's exterior bottom is covered with blue oils mixed with gold powder. At the exterior bottom Maslov has written his name and the title of the work.
