Palekh artist S. Paramonova created this beautiful work from Palekh that shows a colorful rider and trusty steed. Like a fairy tale Paul Revere galloping to his destination, the colorful man carries a torch in his right hand, flames spilling over from the top to the sides. Both the horse and rider have very intricate accents of gold leaf and the horse looks especially regal. The box has a simple black background with swirls of clouds. There are several line ornaments framing the drawing, and a more elaborate one on the sides. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and has a hinge. It is signed at the bottom of the composition with the name of the artist, village, title and year.
