Title: Pouring Water
Artist: Denisenko Marina
Size: 10x15x3
Size (inches): 4x6x1.25
Price: $495 $379

This inspirational composition is an original by Palekh artist Marina Alexeevna Denisenko, who has a gift for painting religious scenes and symbolism. There is a great sense of power in her work, and although she works with egg-tempera paints she is able to use them like oil paints. When working on new and exciting compositions she always pours her entire being into the work.
The box shows the angel and the goddesses of fertility pouring water from the sky down the flowering garden. The palette is very realistic and shows a beautiful garden with a wide variety of tones and hues. The fine gold and aluminum detail in this piece is absolutely amazingly executed. Everything is highlighted with fine gold strokes. Aluminum is used to show the water flowing from the fountain depicted in the background, and from the buckets that the goddesses and the angel hold in their hands. The work is particularly spectacular in the flora of the garden, as stems, veins, and fringed petals are all painstakingly defined.
This box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The box's sides are decorated with an elegant gold ornamentation. The work is signed with the artist's name, and the village of Palekh.
