Ivan's right hand is raised to his heart, and his left falls helplessly down, holding the ill-fated bow in it; he stands astonished at the view of his wife-to-be: a frog. The frog appears to smile, and streaks of gold emanage from her in all directions, hinting at her concealed magical nature. A white water lilly nearby adds a touch of gentle elegance to the marshy habitat of the princess. The scene, with the towers of the kingdom visible in the distance, is painted in traditional Kholui colors: washed-off shades of green, pink, yellow, and red dominate the scene, creating a work reminiscent of original fairy tale book illustrations.

This box is made from papier mache. It rests on four round legs, and has a hinge on the left. The interior is red. Signed with the name of the artist (Kiryanov), composition, and village. Lacquer is in very good condition.
