Title: Flying Carpet
Artist: Tisnitsyna Aleona
Size: 22x15.5x7
Size (inches): 8.75x6x2.75
Price: $499

Tisnitsyna Aleona from the village of Fedoskino has painted this popular for Fedoskino subject.
It features an episode from the fairy-tale "Ivan Tsarevich and the Firebird". Here we can see Ivan Tsarevich and Princess Elena flying on the magic carpet. Ivan Tsarevich holds the golden cage with the Firebird in it. He has successfully fulfilled all the tsar's errands, and now he is on his way to the native kingdom.
The black background has been chosen by the artist to create an impression that the depicted action happens at night. Silver paint creates brilliance of the full moon. The magic carpet and the figures of Ivan Tsarevich and Princess Elena are painted in bright gold and silver paints, and detailed with oils. The exception is the faces of both characters entirely painted in oils.
The box's sides are decorated with views of landscapes painted in gold and bronze.
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 at the top, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with Fedoskino and the name of the artist.
