Artist's depictions of the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus have been treasured for countless believers and nonbelievers alike. And "treasure" is the perfect word to describe this mini masterpiece by Palekh artist Vera Smirnova. The faces here are painted with smooth tender brushstrokes and the intricate gold work provides an appropriate radiant glow to the scene. Behind Mary and Jeus you can catch a glimpse of a painting (or is it a window to the outside?) showing a beautiful landscape with leafy trees and majestic architecture. The box has a skillfully painted gold border around its side. It is made out of high quality papier mache, a hinge at the side, and stands on four small legs. Signed at the bottom of the drawing with the name of the artist, village and year.
