Title: Flying carpet
Artist: Sdobnova Elena
Size: 17.5x14x6.5
Size (inches): 6.75x5.5x2.5
Price : $495 SOLD!


Talented Fedoskino artist Sdobnova Elena has painted this splendid box.
It features an episode from the fairy-tale "Ivan Tsarevich and the Firebird". Here we can see Ivan Tsarevich and Princess Elena flying on the magic carpet. Ivan Tsarevich holds the golden cage with the Firebird in it. He has successfully fulfilled all the tsar's errands, and now he is on his way to the native Kingdom.
The black background has been chosen by the artist to create an impression that the depicted action happens at night. Mother-of-pearl creates brilliance of the full moon, produces shimmering light that comes from the cage of Fire-bird,magic carpet and shines through the Princess's and Ivan's costume. The exception is the faces of both characters entirely painted in oils. Silver paint is also used to paint the shinning stars.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged at the top, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed by the artist's name and Fedoskino.
