A pale spring landscape is bathed in the soft patterns of light and shadow cast by retreating rain clouds. Delicate brush strokes and subtle greens and grays accented with softest pink and blue beautifully recreate the faint haze of the first sunlight after a brief spring shower. The deep tones of the foreground slowly melt into pale mint as the sunlight kisses a softly rolling hill crowned with the stately white tower of the village church. Tiny villagers bustle through the scene, as a tiny figure takes advantage of the sudden break in the weather to row a miniature boat up the sparkling creek. There sides are decorated with softly marbled black and deep metallic teal, with a delicate dusting of silver. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name, V. Svyatchenkov, and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush. The artist, Viacheslav Svyatchenkov, has created some beautiful pieces in the past for us, and has several boxes featured in two of the most recent books on Russian lacquer art: "Russian Lacquer Painting - 21st Century" and "Russian Lacquer Miniatures".
