Title: Portrait of Boyarinya
Artist: Fomichov Sergey
Size: 7x10.5x3
Size (inches): 2.75x4x1.25
Price: $550 $325

This gorgeous portrait of a Russian boyarynya has been created by Sergey Fomichyov. The artist has splendidly painted the festive costume of the boyarynya that reflects the fashion of medieval Russia. The face of the depicted woman is also nicely painted. The crimson brown background tones beautifully with her brown eyes and her costume painted in various shades of brown oils.
The portrait is framed with a wavy gold pattern. More complex and rich gold filigree pattern wraps around the box's sides. For additional decoration the box's sides are covered with crimson paint mixed with gold powder. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The edges of the box's red lacquered interior are covered with black paint.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the portrait, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and the year of 2007.
