The story of the Speckled Hen is drawn on this box by Palekh artist Evgeniya Nebogatova. Here is a link where you can can read the this whimsical tale, or if you are more adventurous, here is one in Russian with pictures. The bearded man and his wife, the house they live in, and their dog and cat all make for a rich folk scene. And you can't miss the stars of the little tale; near the top of the drawing is the hen with her wings extended fully to each side, and at the bottom is the mouse with his famous tail, all gussied up. Nebogatov embellished the work with a lot of gold and silver (aluminum), giving it a lovely radiance and a very warm feeling. The drawing is framed with a nice gold and silver ornament, and a slightly more elaborate one decorates the sides. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and it has a hinge. Signed with the name of the artist, village and year.
