This superior Russian lacquer artistry was created by the talented Oleg Yastrebov of Fedoskino. His ability to depict strikingly decorative compositions is second to none.
The work is called "Silence", and features the boy, a bell ringer, sitting on the fence under the bells and dreaming of something pleasant. In ancient Russian like in many other courtiers bells gave the alarm or announced the beginning of religious feasts.
The scene is painted in brown and white tones against the black background. Multicolored spangles are sprayed throughout the scene for additional decoration.
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. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests flat. The work is signed (with his heart-shape sign), titled ("Silence"), and Fedoskino and date(2007) by the artist.
