The tale of the Snow Maiden. comes to life on this stunning work by Valentin Tikhomirov. Tikhomirov has won many awards for his lacquer art, with several pieces in museums. His impeccable technique, paired with an almost theatrical composition, creates a refreshing new look at a favorite tale. A bustling village nestles in the snowy hills, its wooden cottages carefully arranged in a softly undulating rhythm, creating a sense of movement. Jolly troikas leap through the snowdrifts, leading the eye to the lone figure of the Snowmaiden. Her longing to join in is apparent in her wistful expression as she watches the village childen at play. Hidden from view behind icy foliage, she remains apart from the humans, preferring the quiet peace of the forest and friendship of woodland creatures to the noise of the village and complicated maze of human emotion. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name, and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four round feet. A dazzling interpretation of a classic by a master of lacquer art. --BOX1147
