Alexey Lapshin from the village of Palekh is known as an author of original boxes painted on interesting, unusual scenes. This is another his original creation called "Seedworm", that features the happy worm devouring the apple.
To paint this box the artist has used only gold and aluminum paints along with the black background, traditional for all Palekh boxes.
The scene is framed with gold beads of different size. The sides of the box are decorated with elegant gold ornamentation.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the village of Palekh, and the year of 2006 at the bottom of the scene.
