Title: Scarlet Flower/Beauty and the Beast(dual-sided box)

Size: 14.5x9.5x3
Size (inches): 5.75x3.75x1.25
Price: $1850 $1395

This dual-sided box was painted by the well-known among the collectors artistic duet of wife and husband- Yugeniy and Svelana Vlasovs.
It shows the scenes from the Russian tale, "Scarlet Flower". The tale is very similar to what we know today as "Beauty and the Beast." This thrilling tale tells about love of a beautiful girl and a horrible beast that afterwards will turn into a handsome prince.
With an abundance of detail Vlasovs give the eyes a feast of information to digest. It is hard to conceive the amount of brush strokes they made, the amount of blending and layering, or the constant re-working of the scene to make it look perfect. The details are enhanced tremendously by the golden and silver contours illuminating each and every inch of the moment composed.
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 exterior is decorated with rich and very intricate gold and silver patterns.
The box has a hinge to the bottom of the scenes, and the box rests flat. On one of the lid's interior the artists wrote in gold their names, a list of materials used, the title -"Scarlet Flower", the village name of Kholui, the year of 2012, and the confirmation that this work is of original design.
