The sun rises against a brilliant golden sky , illuminating a woman, child, and cat waiting patiently for the return of the man of the house. They toy idly with the long grass while caught in a collective daydream of the ship containing their beloved patriarch returning to port. Their thoughts take shape as ships gliding through the gilded sky. The limited palette of warm peaches and golds, and cool whites and bluesimparts a dream-like, nostalgic feel. Delicate sprays of golden flowers, echoing the white blossoms in the woman's hair, frame the scene. The sides and flush base are adorned with more brilliant, "reverse painted" gold decoration, with flowers and a thick border on the sides, and a smiling face among the blossoms on the base. This box is made of high quality papier mache, and is signed on the lid with artis's name (R. Chibisov), village, and date of completion, and with the same, plus the title, on the underside of the lid. There is a hinge at the top left, and the interior is red lacquer.
