The fearsome, three headed dragon rears up from the Russian countryside, taking with it the beautiful princess who has been left as a sacrifice in hopes it will spare the city. Saint George, aghast at hearing the townsfolk's plans for ridding themselves of the dragon, has rushed from the city to save the innocent girl. He draws his sword and prepares to piece the dragon's scaly hide, calling to the princess to throw her girdle around the dragon's neck. The combination of wound and makeshift leash will prove too much for the beast, who will allow the pair to lead him into town. Warm brown and rich pink punctuate the soft blue green tones of Nebogatova's signature palette. Generous golden accents wink and sparkle throughout the scene, lending a magical feel. The "S" shape of the composition creates a dramatic sense of motion, reinforced by the sinuous lines of Nebogatova. Her work is featured in "Russian Lacquer, Legends and Fairy Tales". This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four curved feet.
