Main Product Image
This box features the centuries old sport of falcon hunting as a horseman and his winged helper look for their prey. Meanwhile, a bear nearby eyes a couple of mushrooms in the ground. The vertical layout of the painting is very effective and the horse and rider, painted in vivid eyecatching colors, are the center of attention. But it may be the falcon in his hand that gives the composition more flavor and substance. With its perfectly shaped wings and a keen look in his eye, this is a bird you won't want to take for granted (particularly if you are a small animal.) The box is adorned with beautiful ornamentation on top, and more modestly on the sides. It is made out of high quality papier mache and has a hinge at the left. It stands on four small rounded legs. The composition is signed at the bottom with the name of the artist (Kumanev) and title.
