Daniil Molodkin is one of the most popular Mstera artists around nowadays among with his two brothers(Denis and Nikolay) and father( Vladimir). Daniil's grass men theme is became popular about 20 years ago within the collectors of Russian Lacquer Art. If 10-20 years ago we can say, that success of this theme can be attributed to his want to make something fresh and not something that has been made before, now this style became his own unique and recognizable!
The work is entitled "Dragon and Unicorn", and shows the artist's fantasy on this theme. One of the warriors is sit on dragon and the other one -on a Unicorn. The background is filled with various plants, flowers. Bright green, blue and orange tones help to create the stylized atmosphere that make Daniil's compositions uniquely his own. Gold as always is used to enhance the details.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The scene is outlined with gold. A gold foliage pattern decorates the edges of the lid, and this same pattern (only bigger in size) decorates the sides of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, Mstera, and the title.
