Who can't relate to this scene. You are sitting on your favorite piece of furniture, enjoying a quiet moment with a good book, and all of a sudden, you become a little too comfortable and you nod off. Fedoskino artist N. Khizhnyak captures this time perfectly in painting this lovely young lady, doing it in amazing detail. The phenomenal degree of intricacy can be seen in many things here, and the features of the woman, her gown, and flowers to her right are all done particularly well. A geometric silver border glistens around the drawing and on the sides. The side background is a burgundy color and the inside is a similar dark red. The emblem of Fedoskino is stamped under the lid. The box, made out of high quality papier mache and has a hinge. It is more than 10 years old and the surface lacquer has settled just slightly allowing some individual brush strokes so show through. The box is signed with the name of the artist and village. It lies flat on the surface of the table. A fine miniature.
