Title: Brooch: Winter Troyka
Artist: Kuzmenko Galina
Size: 6x4.5x1
Size (inches): 2.5x1.5x0.5
Price: $110 $75

Talented Kuzmenko Galina from the village of Palekh is the artist who painted this stylish brooch. The brooch shows a traditional scene of speeding winter troika. A young lady traverses the snow-covered expanses of Russian countryside sitting in the sledge pulled at high speed by three mighty horses.
Red and blue tones tempera paints predominate here. The details are richly enhanced in bright gold paint. The scene is framed with a gold ornamentation composed of tiny gold beads. The brooch can be attached to your clothing with a pin.
The brooch is constructed from paper-mache. Its exterior is covered with black lacquer. The work is signed with the name of the artist and the village of Palekh.
