Svetlana Chirkova is an established Fedoskino artist who is responsible for this beautiful lacquer box. Chirkova specializes in portrait genre, and has already created a series of astonishing female portraits. She has a recognizable painting style, and tries to produce the works of her own designs.The piece is called "With the stream", and shows the artist's fantasy on this theme. Chirkova imagines a beautiful woman covered with flows going down in the river . On the other hand an artist may mean about a position of a lady in her life-she is not active and her life is very smooth as a river flow... The portrait is painted against the shining silver and light blue background. The box's sides are decorated with blue oil paint. The box is constructed from paper-mache. Red lacquer covers the interior of the work. A hinge has been fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on the flat bottom. Chirkova has written her name, the title, and Fedoskino on the box's exterior bottom.
