The box shows a scene from the popular fairy-tale "The Snowmaiden", or "Snegurochka". The tale was also adapted into an opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.
Here we can see the Snowmaiden saying goodbye to her mother Fairy Spring. The scene is painted in the icon painting style, which has been passed on from generation to the next and used in painting beautiful scenes like this. The detail is executed with precise brushwork, and with the aid of gold that also brings out the bold quality in the colors.

The lid is hinged from the top, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, title and the year of 2011.
