Fedoskino artist Svetlana Chirkova painted this classically shaped box showing a young fashionably dressed woman out on a boat with her dog. She is obviously well-to-do and her dog also probably knows his station in life, as well. While the faces of the two couldn't be more different (the fair skinned beauty versus the dark mug of the dog), both the woman and dog have a certain air apart them that they believe sets them apart from the rest. Chirkova painted this scene with great detail throughout, and the design of the blanket that she is resting on is just one of the many objects that she paints with extreme precision. Realism on a miniature scale doesn't get much better. The drawing has a delicate ornamental design around it, and there is another ornament close to the bottom edge. The sides also have some wonderful little lily pad vignettes at most of the rounded corners. The base color on the sides and bottom is a very light green. The inside is red. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and signed at the bottom of the drawing with the name of the artist, the title and year. A sophisticated scene for those with impeccable taste.
