Title: A Butterfly on a Leaf
Artist: miroshnichenko
Size (cm): 20x12x4.5
Size (in): 8x4.75x1.75
Price: $395.00 SOLD!


This interesting work is a creation of Mirochnichenko, a talented artist from the village of Fedoskino. It repeats the shape of a faded autumn orange-brownish leaf. Oil paints cover the whole surface of the box except its interior. In some areas the oils are mixed with bright gold dust. Gold metal leaf shines through the oils on the front and bottom sides of the box. The beautiful butterfly crafted tree-dimensionally, and glued on the front side is a zest of the work. The box has a small lid hinged d at the base of leaf; it opens to reveal a small square compartment.
The work is signed with the artist's name on the lid's interior. Very interesting box that shows the artist's extraordinary approach to the traditions of lacquer art world.
