Lekomtsev Boris from the village of Palekh is a creator of this interesting work. It features a man traveling by a very strange aircraft that looks like a balloon but flies by means of the sails. The scene is painted in bright tempera paints against the black background traditional for Palekh School of lacquer miniature painting. Bright gold paints add details to the scene, and beautifully enliven it.
