Description:

This box was painted by a talented Kholui artist Yudakina Olga.
The box shows a scene from the well-known Russian fairy-tale "Father Frost" or "Morozko".
The poor little girl sent to the forest by her cruel stepmother sits under the tree till Father Frost finds her. He blows at her with his frost breathing, but in spite of her suffering, the girl greets him politely and does not complain about her condition. Father Frost likes the girl for her kind heart, and rewards her with rich presents.
The composition is framed with rich golden ornamentation. The box is made out of paper-mache, and covered with black lacquer.The interior is painted red. The box is hinged at the top of the composition, and rests on wavy legs. The work is titled, signed by the artist.
