Description:

This stunning large box has being painted by the Top 10 Master Igor Isaev from the village of Fedoskino. It shows a view of the ancient district of Moscow called Kolomenskoye in a Fall. In the background we can see the modern apartment buildings of Moscow while in the foreground we can observe a special charm of the Russian old Churches. The scene is painted in light brown tones suitable for depiction of an autumn season. This palette is enlivened by gold and silver powder that highlights the trees and the architecture.
Kolomenskoye is a former royal estate situated several kilometers to the southeast of the city center of Moscow, Russia, on the ancient road leading to the town of Kolomna. The very large scenic area overlooks the steep banks of the Moskva River. It became a part of Moscow only in the 1960s.
Kolomenskoye village was first mentioned in the testament of Ivan Kalita (1339). As time went by, the village was developed as a favorite country estate of grand princes of Muscovy. The earliest existing structure is the exceptional Ascension church (1532), built in white stone to commemorate the long-awaited birth of an heir to the throne, the future Ivan the Terrible. Being the first stone church of tent-like variety, the uncanonical "White Column" marked a stunning break from the Byzantine tradition.
The box's exterior is beautifully decorated. The scene is framed with a wide gold band. Another wide gold band can be found decorating the bottom part of the box's body. The box's exterior imitates a stone color: tiny black veins are scattered against the light gray background. The box's interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on four legs highlighted with gold paint. The work is signed with the name of the artist, the village of Fedoskino, the year of 2012 and the title.
Gem of any collection!
