This exquisite piece was created by talented Mstera artist Strunun Mikhail.

The box shows several moments from the fairy-tale "Talkative Wife". The entire surface of the box's exterior (except the exterior bottom) is covered with colorful scenes drawn in the traditional Mstera style. Gold and aluminum paint is used to enhance various details, and also to add a definitive sparkle to the scenes.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box's exterior is decorated with intricate gold floral ornaments accented with aluminum. The lid is hinged, and the box rests on a platform. The work is signed with the artist's name, Mstera, and the title.
