This beautiful oval box is a creation of the talented Fedoskino artist, Margarita Belova. Here she has painted a romantic scene. It is a sunny, sultry, August day.  While peasants work hard in the field, a loving couple has a rendezvous hiding behind a big haystack.
Green tones of oils suitable for reproduction of a summer scene predominate here. Belova's painting is impeccable, her brush strokes are invisible and color combinations are enchanting. This romantic scene may touch the coldest of hearts.
The edges of the lid and the sides of the box's bottom are decorated with shining gold and silver scan pattern (made of tiny shapes hand punched from gold and silver metal sheets, and then glued to the box manually).
The box is made out of high quality paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, and the village of Fedoskino.
