Father Frost and Faerie Spring stroll through the countryside, arm in arm, as a magical Siren Bird watches over. The enchanted couple talk merrily amongst themselves, perhaps making sure that the human village will be a safe place for their daughter, the Snow Maiden. The composition of the scene is nicely done, with Father Frost and Faerie Spring bisecting the landscape, and the season of each represented on the half nearest them. On Father Frost's side, a couple builds a grinning snowman, while their cottages beckon snugly in the distance. On Faerie Spring's side, two women marvel at the beauty of the freshly bloomed landscape. The scene is rendered in bright, cheerful colors, but with a careful eye for balance. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the underside of the lid with the title, artist's name, and village. There is no hinge, and the base of this piece is flush. A charming variation of a favorite theme by N. Molodkin.--BOX1323
