The serene beauty of a swamp is afire with deep jewel tones accented with pale lavender, peach, and silver in this elegant work by T. Yantkova. Delicate flecks of gold and silver lightly dust the landscape to create a feeling of fairy tale magic. The tiny maiden, Thumbelina holds court on a brilliant pink water lily, attended by a glittering butterflies and a rainbow scaled carp. Her gown and delicate tiara glisten with a golden foil underlay, contrasting beautifully with the rich, metallic autumn tones of the background, and her pale skin seems to glow. She wears a cautiously hopeful smile, grateful too have escaped the toad who held her captive, yet uncertain of the lily pad's final destination. The sides are painted with a subtle deep red, reminiscent of heliotrope, and ringed with butterflies and irises. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the underside of the lid with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is no hinge, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush.
