The Princess peeks shyly out of the bogatyr's cottage, apologizing for intruding. The leader of the knights waves his hand as though to say "don't worry about it" as his brothers whisper about the beautiful stranger. (To read the whole fairy tale, click here.)The scene is well painted with a nice mixture of bright and dark creating a dramatic effect. Thoughtfully placed golden accents shimmer throughout the scene, complementing the ornate gold and silver border along the sides. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (O. Dobrina), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four round legs.
