The image of "Winter" is shown in all her beauty in this lovely little box by Palekh artist Vera Smirnova. Her delicate fingers at the far right hold a magic wand that will turn everything to white. Her face is very detailed and has a lot of natural tender beauty. The gold in her headdress and surroundings, meanwhile, is brilliant in its radiance. The sides and bottom of the box are black and a nice little gold ornament decorates the bottom of the box. The box is made out of high quality papier mache, has a red interior, and no legs. On the side of the lid, it is signed with the artist, village and year.
