Title: At the River
Artist: Kozhemyakina Irina
Size: 10x10x4
Size (inches): 4x4x1.5
Price: $175

Kozhemyakina Irina of Kholui is the artist who painted this small charming box.
This box is quit simple, but very attractive. The palette the artist uses is based on warm colors: green, blue with addition of gold paints.
Here the artist has depicted a village girl and a lad who went out to the river in a small wooden boat. The boat came close a bank, where the depht is not so high and water lilies are growing. They have picked up several of them and the lad is trying to hug a girl. On the background we can see wooden houses of the village and a forest.
The box is constructed from paper-mache made. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while a red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge has been fastened to the top of the composition and the box rests flat.
The artist has singed the box with his name, the title, the village name of Kholui at the bottom of the composition.
