Description:

This attractive Palekh box was painted by Kuzmenko Galina.
Here the artist has depicted a scene from the most popular Russian fairy-tales, "Snegurochka," otherwise known as "The Snowmaiden." In the middle of the composition we can see Lel and Snowmaiden.Lel is playing on a flute a sad song.
The palette is bright, and filled with a rich spectrum of tempera paints.
Gold and aluminum paint details a majority of the scene, which makes the details bring the scene to life.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. Gold dot ornamentation frames the scene, and another expanded pattern, accented with aluminum, wraps around the sides of the box. The box has a hinge above the composition and rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and Palekh.
