This interesting composition was painted by the only member of Academy of Art of Russia from Palekh, Shanitsyna Ekaterina Feodorovna.
Needless to count all her prizes and awards, there are a lot of them since she has start to paint.
The work is called "Maslenitsa" or Pan-cake week, and the artist has painted some traditional folk customs connected with this spring festival. Here we can see burning of a woman of straw that embodies the winter, baking of sacrificial bread - pancakes, dressing masquerades, various games, driving in a sledge at high speed and many others. The figures are painted in bright tempera paints and richly detailed with gold and aluminum paints.
The set is constructed from paper-mache. The exterior of the box is covered with black lacquer while the interior is covered with red lacquer. The box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, and the year of 2012.
