Please note: This exact box has already been sold, however Ms. Smirnova has graciously agreed to do a similar one. Some of the details may be slightly different, but the composition and spirit of the piece will remain the same. Depending on her work load, the normal time frame for this will be 3-6 months. She will be painting it just for you, and will allow the possibility for a minor change in the box should you desire one. We will guarantee that it will look as good or better than the one here. The box will come with exquisite side ornamentation, although we do not have a side picture to show you. If you are not happy with the box you receive for any reason, we will gladly refund the total amount paid. A down payment of 50% will be required for her to start work.

The Little Mermaid is shown in this beautiful work by Smirnova. The story is a sad one, but not without hope and a testimony to the power of love and doing good deeds. The composition is set on the boat showing the prince and princess in a loving embrace. The dichotomy between this pair on the right and the more melancholy mood of the Little Mermaid and the other mermaids on the left is very apparent, perhaps indicative of the peaks and valleys we all experience in our own lives. As usual, Smirnova draws each detail on this one with eye-catching color and high precision. Another glorious work by this artist.
