Title: Sleeping Angel
Artist: Prokhorova A.
Size: 17.5x11.5x4
Size (inches): 6.75x4.5x1.5
Price: $525 $325

This elegantly shaped box has been painted by A. Prokhorova from the village of Fedoskino. In the middle of the box's lid she has painted a baby angel sleeping on a cloud. The scene is painted in the realistic style using white, blue and light brown tones of oils. The box's exterior imitates a stone color (dark blue blurry spots and veins are scattered against the black lacquered surface). The exterior is also decorated with luxuriant gold ornaments accented with light blue oils. The interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer.
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 box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the year of 2002 and the village of Fedoskino.
