Title: At the water well
Artist: Kritova Galina
Size: 16.5x11.5x4.5
Size (inches): 6.5x4.5x1.75
Price: $425 $375

This traditional Palekh box was painted by Kritova Galina. It shows a lad and a girl coming from the well. The lad offers the girl to help her carry the bucket. The girl smiles and probably tells her friend some village news.
The scene is painted in bright red and yellow tones against the black and blue background. Aluminum paint details the snow covered trees and houses; gold paint details the costumes and the architecture.
The scene is framed with gold and aluminum ornament. More complex ornamentation highlighted with aluminum paints wraps around the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged at the top of the scenes, and the box rests on a wavy platform. The box is signed by the artist with her name and Palekh.
