The snow maiden swoons as the sudden warmth of love fills her. Cupid himself parts the clouds, sending beams of emotion towards the tragic girl and her beloved shepherd, Lel. A cloud of steam rises from her long skirt as her snowy body melts with the unfamiliar heat. It seems nearly everyone from the village has come out to enjoy the first nice day of spring, and stand aghast as the maiden slowly evaporates. This box, perfect to put your finest pen in, is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (N. Shmeleva), and village, there is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. It stands on four round legs. A classic!--BOX1157
