Title: Nutcracker
Artist: Esikova Natalie
Size: 15x10x4.5
Size (inches): 6x4x1.5
Price : $495 SOLD!


Nataliya Yesikova of Fedoskino is the talented artist responsible for this animated piece of elegance. There is great energy within this box, the characters and their divinely realistic expressions make this so.
The box displays a scene from "The Nutcracker", a Christmas fairy-tale written by E.T.A Hoffman. The story tells about adventures of a little girl during the Christmas night. All her toys became alive and started speak like people. Her favorite toy, the Nutcracker, became her suitor and defender from the Mouse King. Here we can see the Nutcracker making a declaration of love to the girl.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Its interior is traditionally red. The lid is hinged, and the box sits flat. The work is signed by the artist.
