A handsome man from Rennaissance time enjoys a moment eating a sumptious assortment of fruits and a fine vintage wine. A young maiden passes by just outside his chamber. The interior is drawn with luxurious rich touches, befitting a man of his social standing. Smirnova draws his face and hands with extraordinary skill. A very intricate gold ornament circles the drawing and a more modest one adorns the sides. The box does not have a hinge and is made out of high quality papier mache and sits on three round legs. The box is signed at the bottom of the drawing with the name of the artist, village and year. Smirnova's initials in her unique logo are written on the bottom.
