A bridge over a chilly Moscow River stands just in front of the Kremlin walls. Inside the fortress a number of famous buildings, and cupolas painted with glittering gold, can be seen easily. Less visible is a smaller St. Basil's Cathedral at the right. A glimpse of a more modern Moscow lies in the buildings next to that, including the Hotel Rossiya. The large box has an impressive look and feel to it, yet fine details are not lacking either; this central area of Russia's capital city and home of the Russian government has never looked better! Accents of radiant gold on the trees and bricks of the bridge, and a green that seems to glow on the kremlin towers, all suggest the light that has been cast by a late day sun. The box has a simple gold border around the top and one along the sides. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and has a hinge at the top. The interior is red. The box is signed with the year and the name of the artist, although the writing there is illegible. We will try to get clarification on who did it as soon as possible. A very impressive work!
