A stretched out lady with elongated arms and feet has her head wrapped up like a mummy. Before her appears two faeries who offer her a blue flower to cheer her up. The woman is perhaps some type of jester or clown, judging from her multicolored and geometrical clothing. She could certainly use a spark, and in fact, a trace of a smile appears on her lips. More than her smile, though, it's the sweet look in her eye that gives away how she really feels about the faeries' gift. She is dead tired, butt very much appreciates the attention. (Sorry, I had to get the word "butt" in here somewhere!). Other blue flowers with long stems, balance the woman's fatigue with some bouncy energy. The colorful scene on this box, perfect for a pen, is drawn quite well. The sides and bottom are painted in a phosphorescent copper color, and the the inside is dark red. There is a hinge at the top. The box is signed with the name of the artist (Ulyana Danchenko), village and year at the bottom of the composition.
