We are always pleased to be able to offer the works of Oleg Shapkin, one of Fedoskino's premier artists. It is easy to see why his works are in high demand, but until you see one up close it is difficult to really appreci- ate the extreme detail and level of skill required to paint at this level. This piece perfectly showcases two of Shapkin's many strengths as an artist: a lavishly detailed scene, accen- tuated masterfully with gold and mother-of-pearl, and mind- boggling ornamentation covering the entire bottom of the piece likely crafted from tens of thousands of minute brush- strokes. The box itself is uniquely shaped but retains an ele- gance befitting the composition. The Snowmaiden's ornate winter dress is the centerpiece of the scene, but a bounty of rich detail fills the entire surface of the box. A crown jewel of any collection!
