The velvety blue of a star strewn sky parts to reveal a pair of moths drawn to the fiery brilliance of shimmering fuschia orchids. The moonlight glow of her skin peers through the sunset colored petals as her hands part the blossoms. Swirling bands of lavender frame the scene, creating a shape evocative of a cocoon, while adding a sense of motion and the feeling of night closing in. The figure is painted in a realistic style, with a dreamlike hazy quality. The night sky design continues on the sides and bottom of the box. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the flush base with the title, artist's name, village, and date ofcompletion. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. From the series "The Beauty of the World is Delicate and Tender" by S. Chirkova. Beguiling.--BOX1112
