Title: Nightingale's Song
Artist: Gurileovs Marie and Sergey
Size: 6.5x9.5x3
Size (inches): 2.5x3.75x1.25
Price : $375 SOLD!


This magical detailed box was created with true passion for subject by Palekh artists, Sergey and Maria Gurilyev. This husband and wife artistic team is well known for their dedication to detailed imagery.
Here the artists have chosen a scene of a young lady listening to a song of nightingale.
The palette for this piece contains a wide spectrum of bright and vivid colors. Gold paint, applied with extreme precision, details almost every aspect of the composition. The detailing with the metallic paints is so fine, in fact, that a brush with no more than a single hair was used in many areas. Like all of Gurilyevs' work, this piece is very well detailed and has its own unique mood. The box's exterior is decorated with intricately painted gold and silver patterns.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box and red lacquer is used to paint the interior of the box. The box is not hinged and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the names of the artists and the village of Palekh.
