Morozko, Old Man Winter himself, wears a gruff expression, seemingly annoyed by his unexpected guest. The young girl is so charming and sweet that even Morozko's heart will soon begin to thaw! A pair of normally timid rabbits play at her feet, assuring the viewer of her good nature. (To read the whole fairy tale, click here.)The dense forest is beautifully rendered in icy blues and greens. Thoughtfully placed golden accents add sparkle. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Turunova), and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four round feet. A lovely scene.--BOX1268
