This exceptional box was created by a well-known and established Fedoskino Master, Chistov Sergey.
It is shows a scene from a peasant life. It is the beginning of summer, the time when people celebrate the St. John Baptist's Day (or the Ivan Kupala's Day) which is the ancient pagan feast.
A group of girls and lads sings and dances in a ring, guys are jumping over the bonfire (on the background of the scene), while another girls throw garlands of flowers on the water from a boat trying to forecast their future. The lad who will take the garland out of water will be a husband of the girl, who launched into the water caught garland.
The box is constructed from paper-mache, and rests on a flat bottom. Black lacquer is used to paint its exterior while red lacquer completes its interior. The lid is hinged to the top of the composition.
The scene is framed with a gold line.The box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines, one thinner that the other. The work is signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino and the year of 2013.
