Size: 11.5x7x3.5
Size (inches): 4.5x2.75x1.25
Price: $675 $525

Talented artist Arapova Anastasia from the village of Palekh has painted this scene with a winter troika (three horse sleigh) speeding through the Russian countryside. A loving couple hide from the snowstorm in the sleigh while a driver encourages the horses.
Gold paint is used to detail the sledge, the characters' costumes and the horses' harnesses, manes and tails.This is work is simply amazing, very very thin details!
The scene is framed with a nice golden dot ornament.The box's sides are decorated with rich golden ornament.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged to the top of the composition, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, date (2012) and the village of Palekh.
Fine work!
