Title: Flying Ship/Tale of the Seven Semeons
Artist: Veselova Veronika
Size: 12x8x4
Size (inches): 4.75x3.25x1.5
Price: $1100 $950

Talented artist Veronika Veselova from the village of Kholui has painted this scene based on the interesting tale of "The Seven Semeons".
The whole composition is very much detailed. Close inspection must be given this piece in order to appreciate all of its complexity!
Warm paints dominate the scene, such as orange, yellow, and red, while darker and cooler paints are used to outline the external frame (consisting of the trees and landscape) inside the composition. This helps to draw the eye towards the main characters, and where the artist shows emphasis with the warm tones. Gold paint is used to aid in the adding of the detail. The use of gold helps to enhance the already bold palette and bring out their true highlights.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior and red lacquer is used to paint the interior of the box. The box has a hinge located above the composition and rests flat. The artist wrote the title, Kholuy, 2013, and his name under the composition. She does the same on the interior of the lid.
