This box has been painted by the famous artist Yuriy Aldoshkin from the village of Fedoskino. Here the artist has chosen to depict the view of the Cathedral of the Resurrection or more commonly known as the Our Savior on the Spilt Blood Cathedral in St.Petersburg.
It was built on this specific location because it was where Alexander II life was taken in 1881. Located on the Griboyedov Canal its foundation was laid in 1883, and construction lasted twenty four years when it was consecrated in 1907. Today it has once again been given back to believers.
The entire scene is drawn over a large piece of mother-of-pearl that shines brightly with gray, violet, and blue undertones throught the sides of the Church. A gold band wraps around the edges of the lid and the edges of the box's exterior bottom. The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to complete the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom.
The palette is bright and radiant. Gold paint is used to highlight the cathedral, it domes and the fence of the bridge.
The scene is bordered with a gold line. The sides of the box are decorated with a gold line and intricate golden ornamentation.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the piece. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name, and the village of Fedoskino.
