A trio of troikas race through the Russian countryside, sending clouds of snow swirling heavenward as they thunder through the night. A strong motif of swirls and sinuous curves adds a sense of energy, while emphasizing a lyrical fluidity of movement. The pale creams and rich reds and browns of the scene glisten with thoughtfully placed golden accents. The background of deep, mottled green contrasts beautifully, lending a nice depth to the scene. (The green on the top didn't seem to photograph as well as they green on the sides. In any case, they are the same color.) Elaborate gold and silver borders with jewel toned accents frame the scene, and is repeated on the sides adding a sense of luxury. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (I. Putilova), and village. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four round legs. A beautiful and spirited scene! --BOX1130
