The bogatyr (from baghatur, an old Altaic term for a warrior, a military commander, or an epic hero) or vityaz (a valiant warrior) was a medieval heroic warrior of Kiev's Rus, similar to Western European knight errant.
Here we can see the most famous vityazs' trio of Alyosha Popovich, Dobrynya Nikitich and Ilya Muromets, who served prince Vladimir I of Kiev. Each of them tend to be known for a certain character trait: Alyosha Popovich for his wits, Dobrynya Nikitich for his courage, and Ilya Muromets for his physical and spiritual power and integrity, and for his dedication to the protection of his homeland and people.
Alyosha Popovich - from the town of Rostov, Dobrynya Nikitich - from the town of Riazan (based on a historical warlord of Vladimir I)and Ilya Muromets, regarded as the greatest of the bogatyrs, from the town of Murom(Vladimir's region).

The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, title- Warriors, Vasnetsov and 2016.
