This detailed brooch was painted by a talented Palekh artist Galina Kritova.

Gold paint is used to detail the characters' costumes and Sun.
The brooch is made of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the brooch. The work is signed with the name of the artist, and the village of Palekh.
