Title: Festive Troykas
Artist: Vlezko Vladimir
Size: 18x6.5x4
Size (inches): 7x2.5x1.5
Price: $425 $350

Well-known Palekh Master and former teacher of Palekh Art school Vladimir Vlezko is the artist who painted this scene. Here we see two troykas racing through a field of summer flowers at a blistering pace while a couchman encourages the horses.
The beautiful ribbon is decorated the first troyka-the middle horse. The flowers are painted in red and green tones, while the troika and the human figures are painted in warm orange, red, green and white tones.
Gold and aluminum paints are applied within the composition to add brightness and details. The application of metallic paints is very subtle yet yields great results!
The scene is framed with golden pattern, while the box's sides are decorated with elegant gold ornamentation.
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 has a hinge located above the composition and rests on a flat bottom. Vlezko has signed the box with his name, Palekh and the year of 2016 at the bottom of the composition in gold paint.
