The soft colors of a meadow create a delightful contrast with the deep red background of this striking work. At first glance, it seems an idyllic glimpse of country life. The young woman seems to be resting from gathering hay, her discarded rake to one side, and a tiny goat on the other. But looks can be deceiving; The girl is Alyonushka, and the goat is her naughty brother, whose disobedience has changed him into a goat! The scene is splendidly painted in rich tones with lots of fine gold and silver details. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name, M. Nebogatov, and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four round legs.--BOX1429
