Talented Palekh artist Suloeva Nina is the artist who painted this traditional scene of two speeding winter troikas.
The box is quite large, please check the size!
In each sledge we can see a couple traveled in the snow-covered expanses of Russian countryside sitting in the sledge pulled at high speed by three mighty horses. The horses are painted in traditional orange, white, and red tempera paints that look so beautiful against the black background. Tiny silver dots are drawn throughout the scene to imitate swirling snowflakes. Gold paint is used to detail the sledge, the characters costumes and the horses harness. The trees , bushes and hills are richly decorated with silver paint!
The edges of the lid are adorned with a rich ornament painted in gold. More complex flower ornament painted in gold and in silver is decorated the sides of the box.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name and Palekh.
