Title: Gamayun
Artist: Latsuk Natasha
Size: 6.5x5x3
Price : $160 SOLD!


The talented artist Natalya Latsuk from the village of Palekh created this original box. She is married to Palekh artist Evgeniy Tselikov that is why her manner of painting bears resemblance to the painting technique of her husband. On our website we have some works painted by E. Tselikov and you have a great opportunity to compare works of these two artist.
Here Natalya depicts one of the Slavonic gods - the legendary Paradise Bird named Gamayun. It has a female face and a female bosom. It flies in the skies but lives in the sea. When it screams, it predicts happiness.
The bird is very well drawn. It has a pretty, female face, bright red wings and a beautiful tale. The bird's body is highlighted richly with gold paints. In its claws the bird holds a golden twig bestrewed with golden leaves. The whole surface of the box including the lid, the sides and the base are covered with a mixture of green, emerald and gold paints, while the blackness of the box is very apparent.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The edges of the lid, and the sides of the box are decorated with elegant pattern of gold beads. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box; clear lacquer is added in layers that are polished to a gleaming finish. The box has no hinge and its base is flat. It is signed with the artist's name, village and year (2004).
It is the brilliant work! We hope that Bird Gamayun depicted here will bring you luck and happiness.
