The tale of Morozko, or Old Man Winter plays out along the sides of this delicate miniature by Makarova. A poor woodcutter, on the advice of a new wife, has taken his daughter into the frozen forest to abandon her. After she is rewarded for her kindness, her stepsister is sent to the woods in hopes of earning more riches, but her disagreeable attitude earns her only a very cold night. The scene is nicely painted in warm shades f green, yellow, and red, with golden accents. Tiny details draw the eye, and distinct expressions and postures imbue each figure with a unique personality. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title and village. There is no hinge, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on three round legs.
