The art heritage of the great Russian painter, Konstantin Makovsky, inspires many Fedoskino artists to create copies of his masterpieces. This gorgeous box shows a version of the famous Makovsky's painting "A Peasant Girl Spinning Yarn" painted by well-known artist Antonov Victor.
The scene is masterfully painted in oils in the realistic style. Silver metal powder shines through the girl's sarafan.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's initials (A.V.), and the year of 2007.
