Description:

This multi-figured composition was painted by a talented Palekh artist Kornilov Alexander.
The box depicts a scene from the Pushkin's fairy-tale "The Tale of Tsar Saltan". Prince Gvidon embraces the Princess Swan and shows her the ship on the board of which his father is sailing. Tsar Saltan will see in this fairy island many wonders: the squirrel that all day long shells golden nuts, separating gold nutshells from emerald kernel of nuts, the thirty-three knights with their uncle old Chernomor, rising from the raging sea, and, certainly, he will be very surprised to meet there his beloved wife and son.
The composition is painted in the soft red, blue and yellow colors. The subtlety of the figures is emphasized by the gold leaves, the details of the figures are emphasized with a gold paint.
Intricate gold foliage ornamentation decorate the edges of the lid. Very complex and colorful flower ornament wraps around the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the work while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box rests flat. The work is signed with artist's name, 2014 and Palekh.
