Title: Christmas
Artist: Gaun Alexander
Size: 24x18x5
Size (inches): 9.5x7x2
Price : $1100 SOLD!


This impressive biblical story was painted by Mstera's Master Alexander Gaun. The artist has already created a series of works based on various biblical subjects such as "Flood", "Exodus", "Gogotha", "Judas Treachery", and this piece continues this list of religious themes.
On this composition the artist has painted the famous biblical subject of Christmas.
The composition is set horizontally. The coloring of the composition is typical for Gaun's painting style. It is based on harmonious combinations of three main colors: brown, red and yellow. Gold paint is used to detail the halo over Mary and Jesus's heads and to headline some other parts of the painting.
The composition is framed with two parallel gold lines, while the box's sides are decorated with beautiful gold floral ornamentation. The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge located from the top of the composition and rests on four feet.
The work is signed with the artist's name, the village of Mstera and the title "Christmas" , at the bottom of the composition.
Fine work!
