The wide blue eyes of a serene auburn beauty are echoed in the shimmering background of this elegant box by Chirkova. Her wide brimmed hat, decorated with lush, sparkling blossoms, bobs and nods in the cool sea breeze. The slightest hint of greenish ocean against a pale horizon creates an elegant background, while a subtle curl of darker blue frames the figure and adds to the sense of movement. The figure is painted with a stunning realism; Chirkova perfectly captures the contrast of brilliant sunlight and shade, imbuing the figure with a magical glow. This box is made of high quality papier mache, and is signed on the flush base with the title, artist's name, and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer.
