This complex composition was painted by a talented Kholuy artist, Pechkina Nelly.
The box is features major characters from the tale of the Humpbacked Little Pony.
In the beginning of the story, when one of three sons- Ivan caught the magic mare that trampled down wheat on his father's field. This mare promised Ivan to present three foals in exchange for freedom. Later two of these foals turned into the steeds with golden manes while the third one turned into the Humpbacked Little Pony. The old greedy Tsar obliged Ivan to fulfill different tasks, and the Humpbacked Little Pony always helped him. And in the end of a story instead of the tsar Ivan dipped himself in three cauldrons of boiling water, boiling milk and ice cold water, and transformed into a very handsome young man and the Tsar only boiled in the first one...
The golden glow of the composition is reached with the aid of real golden leaves, glued on the top of the lid.
The exterior of this box was painted with black lacquer and the interior was painted with red lacquer. The lid of the composition is ornamented with gold scroll work, same as the sides of the box!
The lid of this box is hinged to the top of the box, and the box rests flat. Upon completing his work, Pechkin has signed the composition with name, the title and village name of Kholui.
