Main Product Image
This pretty box features the Snow Maiden, drawn three times on the side, and once on top, each time dressed in a pale green jacket and darker green cape. Never is she alone as she mingles with Lel, another women (perhaps her Faerie Spring?) and a tall buck with antlers on the top. Beautiful orthodox churches in a wintry setting are drawn on the sides, as well. A good amount of gold leaf has been applied to various objects throughout. The box consists of the top half which has all the drawings, and the short base which has a modest dot ornament. The base sits on three round legs. On the bottom, the artist writes his name (T. Chechik), the village and title. Very nicely done for the reasonable price.
