This box is a creation of prominent Fedoskino landscape painter, Sergey Parmeonov.
Here he has masterfully reflected beauty of Russian countryside in winter. A flash of sunset colors on the sky is achieved with the help of a sparkling gold metal foil. Painterly skill creates a dramatic interplay of light and shadow within the scene.
The scene is outlined with gold line on 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 its interior. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on the wavy platform. The work is signed with the artist's name.
