Title: Snow Queen
Artist: Ogir Dmitriy
Size: 11.5x8.5x2
Size (inches): 4.5x3.25x0.75
Price : $480 SOLD!


This beautiful box was created by Dmitry Ogir. Here he has chosen to depict a recognizable scene from Hans Christian Andersen's popular fairy tale "The Snow Queen". Kay was sledging down the ice-hill together with other children. Suddenly he saw the Snow Queen's luxuriant huge sledge pulled by magnificent white steeds. The Snow Queen whose festive attire was shining like diamonds offered the boy to take a ride inside her speedy sledge, the boy agreed, and nobody saw him since then.
Cool blue tones suitable for depiction of a winter scene dominate here. Various details like the characters' costumes, the horse's mane, the bird's feathers and the architecture are enhanced with gold paint. The scene is framed with a nice gold scroll pattern accented with aluminum.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box is hinged from the top of the scene and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and the title.
