Fedoskino artist Nikolaj Zotov, known for his unusually shaped pieces, created this spherically shaped work showing images from the country. On top, a young man and woman sit side by side, gently touching one another, among golden strands of hay. The have just returned from picking apples, as one can see by the basket beside them and the apple trees above. A rather mischievous looking goat is painted on one side, while two chickens are clucking away on the other. Several old buildings are in the background. The spherical shape of the box flattens out on the bottom, and opens up to reveal a lavender color with faint spots of gold. Also, placed on the surface of the box in several places are some very small orbs, two of them painted to resemble apples. The box has a hinge and is signed with the name of the artist. A lovely and interesting piece from one of the top Fedoskino artists.
