The box shows Baba-Yaga staying near her magic hut on chicken legs. Baba-Yaga is the oldest character of the Slavonic mythology. Originally Baba-Yaga was the goddess of death; people imagined her as a woman with the snake tail who guarded the entrance into the other world and accompanied the souls of dead people into the Kingdom of the Dead.
Baba Yaga is the most famous figure in Russian fairy tales that represents evil. It is a character of such fairy-tales as "Marya Morevna", "Princess Frog", "The Tale of Life Water and Youth Giving Appels", and many, many others.
The scene is drawn in dark tones as the action takes place in the evening and surround the trees. Gold paint is used to detail Baba-Yaga's costume and the stars.
A waving gold line based on the golden dots acts as a frame for the scene; gold ornament can be also found wrapping around the bottom part of the box's sides. The box's interior is covered with red paint. The exterior is painted black.The box is signed with the artist's name, Kholui and title- Baba-Yaga.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. A hinge is fastened to the top of the scene, and the box rests on wavy platform.
