This traditional Russian composition was painted by the well-known Fedoskino Master,Boris Shavirin.
The box shows an activity in Winter time in Russian village.
This theme is traditional for Russian lacquer miniature art and very popular among modern artists. Here we can see young lady carrying the buckles full of water on a shoulder yoke from the well to the house. She dressed in traditional Russian costume of the 18th century. Around here we can see other villagers. One of them, a young lad, is trying talk to this lady. He is stretching his hand to this lady and saying something, probably trying to get acquainted with her. The other people are looking at them...
The costumes of all the characters are richly decorated with gold paint!
The palette incorporates blue, brown and white oils as the action takes place in winter, with addition of gold and silver metal paints. The artist demonstrates his unsurpassed skill while painting the charackter's festive attires. The effect of festivity is strengthened by several pieces of mother-of-pear inlaid into the costumes of the characters.
Rich oranmentaion painted in gold frames the composition.The box's sides are decorated with more rich golden pattern. The interior of the box is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box has a hinge to the top of the scene and rests on four legs. It is signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino and the year (2020). Fine piece of Fedoskino Art!!!
