A pair of vines strewn with blue roses part the blackness to reveal the scintilating azure beauty of the night. The personification of night gazes into the cobalt sky gleaming with the soft brilliance of starlight. Her garment seems woven of moon kissed clouds and her skin is a light with a lunar glow. The rippling copper and golden sparkle of her tresses creates a dazzling contrast with the rich blues, adding a sense of depth. The flush base features a mirror of the shape at the front, containing a rich blue silhouette. The colors are much more vibrant in person, and the figure has more of a milky glow, without the slight greenish cast in the photograph. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the base with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. An enchanting work by S. Chirkova.--BOX1158
