Title: Vasilisa the Beautiful
Artist: Govorun P.
Size (cm): 18x15x7.5
Size (inches): 7.25x6x3
Price : $2850 SOLD!





This incredible box features the triumphant ending to the tale of Vasilisa the Beautiful, when the lovely maiden has overcome terrible adversity and married the tsar. As part of the celebration, Vasilisa is prompted to dance, and the guests raise their cups in respect.

Fedoskino artist Govorun's unique style is immediately recognizable in the painting, unusual shape of the box, and the ornate decoration that fills all five visible sides of the piece. The aluminum shapes are applied by hand with painstaking patience and precision, resulting in a shimmering ornament for a equally beautiful composition.

The front and back each have a small arched scene and Govorun has painted his ornate signature on the inside of the lid.
