Title: Tale of a little hump-backed horse
Artist: The Vlasovs- Evgeniy and Svetlana
Size: 15.5x3.5
Size (inches): 6x1.25
Price : $1350 SOLD!


The renowned Masters Evgeniy and Svetlana Vlasovs from the village of Kholui has crafted this original composition based on the interesting tale "The Hump Backed Little Pony". The depth and accuracy of their painting finds itself at the apex in contemporary lacquer painting circles, and their intricate compositions are favored by many collectors. The works of Vlasovs family are featured in many lacquer art books.
This round box featured several scenes from the tale of a Hump Backed Little Pony.
Each scene depicted here shows a recognizible moment of story. In center of the composition we can see Ivan traveling on a hump-backed pony. In the beginning of the story Ivan caught the magic mare that trampled down wheat on his father's field. This mare promised Ivan to present three foals in exchange for freedom. Later two of these foals turned into the steeds with golden manes depicted here, and the third one turned into the Humpbacked Little Pony.
On the next one, Ivan has brought two steed to show to the Tsar. On the next one, Ivan holds the golden feather of a firebird that later becomes the reason of his first errand: he'll be obliged to catch the firebird for the old, greedy tsar. Next,there is the tent with dinner and a jar of wine inside that Ivan has erected to lure and capture the Tsar-Maiden who is boating nearby. And the last part of the painting shows the end of the story, when Ivan have to jump in there barrels/jars and became handsome fellow, but later when the Tsar jumped in the boiled water, he just bolied in it...
The entire surface of the box is filled with wondrous details. Gold paint is used to aid in the adding of the detail. The use of gold helps to enhance the already bold palette and bring out their true highlights!
Gold of different shades is also used to decorate the exterior of the box. The Vlasov's precision and ability to paint minute decoration is illustrated in the filigree that frames the scene and the filigree that wraps around the sides of the box.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior and red lacquer is used to paint the interior of the box. The box isn't hinged and rests flat. The artists wrote the title, Kholuy, 2015, and their names on the interior of the lid, and added that this work is their original creation and the materials they have used.
