The wild landscape glows as the Mistress of Copper Mountain reveals the enchanted Stone Flower to the stone carver, Danila. His desire for perfection in his work as a stonecutter has lead him to seek out the legendary blossom, despite the fact that it will make him forget all he has ever known, and those who love him. His fiance, Katya, makes her way through the forest, searching for her lost love. The scene seems to glow from within from the vibrant yellows and creamy oranges. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (G. Bolshova), village, and date of completion. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. The flush base bears the Mstera archer insignia. We have two of these boxes by the same artist, both very similar and equally well done. A favorite traditional piece to add to or start your collection with.
