Description:

This traditional Palekh box has been drawn by a talented Palekh artist, Kuzmenko Galina.
The box shows a scene from the popular fairy-tale "The Snowmaiden", or "Snegurochka". Here we can see the Snowmaiden saying goodbye to her mother Fairy Spring. On the left of the background we can Lel playing a song on a flute.
The scene is painted in the icon painting style, which has been passed on from generation to the next and used in painting beautiful scenes like this. The detail is executed with precise brushwork, and with the aid of gold that also brings out the bold quality in the colors.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The exterior is decorated with intricate gold ornaments. The lid is hinged from the top, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and Palekh.
