Irina Turbeneova is the well-known Fedoskino artist who has managed to create such a beautiful five-sided casket. The subject is based on Lewis Carroll's classic tale "Alice in Wonderland".

The palette that she has used is dominated by the pastel, bright tones of oils.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior's bottom of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The casket is hinged and rests on the four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name and Fedoskino at the bottom of the painting of the back side of the casket.
