Description:

Talented artist Inna Akimova of Palekh painted this work.
Lewis Carroll's classic tale "Alice in Wonderland" is the subject of this box. The Hare, the Hat, Alice and the Dormouse sit at the table. At this moment the Hat tells Alice that the Time has taken offence and stopped; and now it will be always 5 o'clock. It is the time of afternoon snack in England, when English men usually drink tea. Just over them the Cheshire Cat lies on the tree branches and smiles as usual. The rest part of the composition is filled with the fairy-tale landscape, playing cards, and several animals including a lizard in the right lower corner.
The palette is very bright and filled with oranges, reds, greens and blues. Gold paint is used to add detail and highlight areas of importance in the scene. The gold is lightly applied throughout the entire scene, but most impressive is the decoration of Alice's dress. With fine brushwork, the artist has created vivid detail on the faces of the various characters, both people and animals.
A nice pattern of golden filigree frames the lid's composition as well as the sides of the box. The side pattern has silver dots.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer was used to paint the exterior of the piece while a brilliant red lacquer completes the interior of the box. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests on four legs. The artist has signed and dated his work(2012) at the bottom of the composition in gold paints.
