This small round box is a creation of Anastasya Denisenko, the daughter of Marina Denisenko, who is a very artistic and talented young woman. It displays a girl picking berries in the forest. To concentrate the viewer's attention on the girl, the artist has painted her costume in bright red tones whereas the surrounding forest setting is drawn in green tones.
