Description:

Talented Mstera artist, Dogadin Alexander, is the author of this splendid piece that shows several scenes from the fairy-tale "The Mistress of the Copper Mountain" written by Pavel Bazhov. Here we can see Katyusha who walks through the forest in search of Danilo. She approaches the Copper Mountain, and decides to penetrate into the deep cave.
Bright yellow, green and red tones accentuates the wild setting in the composition. Dogadin uses a myriad of paints and thousands of minute brush strokes to get the detail in the trees, plants and stones. Gold paint is used to highlight the plants, especially the big tree drawn in the foreground, and to paint the crown on the head of the tiny lizard painted in the left bottom corner.
The scene is framed with a gold line; The lid is decorated with a gold ornament, the box's sides are decorated with gold ornament as well.
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 top of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title and Mstera.
