Father Frost and Faerie Spring stand near their enchanted daughter, the Snow Maiden, as she announces her decision to live in the human village. Father Frost, unhappy with the announcement, tries to reign in the blustery winds caused by his vexation. The Snow Maiden tries to calm her father, with a tiny hand on his chest, and reassures him that she will be fine. Faerie Spring, proud of her daughters independence, wraps a tender arm around the Snow Maiden, as if to whisper, "Don't mind your father, he'll come around." Their fantastic castle rises behind them, its icy colors harmonizing with the rich, cobalt blue background. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title and artist's name (N. Petrunina). There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four small, round legs. We have two of these boxes by the same artist, very similarly done. A lovely fairy tale scene.
