Yevgenia Shatokhina of Palekh is the artist who painted this beautiful winter scene. Cold light blue colors are used to paint the snow-covered areas while the crowns of some trees and the architecture are drawn in warm pink, brown and orange tones. This color contrast is very beautiful. Gold and aluminum paint is used throughout the scene to outline and detail.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The scene is framed with rolling scrollwork, while gold and aluminum foliage pattern wraps around the sides of the box. The lid isn't hinged and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the year of 2004 and the village of Palekh.
