Rich, swirling earth tones paired with an abstract style give this lively scene a modern makeover. Ivan scratches his head in bewilderment as the pony looks up with an aghast expression. A glittering feather from the firebird drifts slowly earthward by Ivan's feet. The pony pleads with him not to take it, and that it will only cause grief, but Ivan seems pretty tempted. The unusual palette of the scene adds to the drama, and the circular shape creates a nice flow and movement. A foil underlay has been used beneath the feather, adding to its magical glow. A heavy decoration of gold and silver adorns the margins and sides. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (A. Morozov), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four round legs. A creative interpretation of a traditional theme.
