The Russian witch Baba-Yaga flies on her mortar, broomstick in hand, and sees the unsuspecting young maiden, Vasilisa. This comes from the Russian fairy tale Vasilisa the Beautiful in which the girl's doll (which she is clutching here) plays a big role in her escape for the witch.

The box is bursting with beautiful colors throughout. Even the ckulls outside Baba Yaga's hut seems to explode with light. The box has some nicely done ornaments on the top and sides. The interior is red. It is made out of papier mache and has a hinge at the left. It sits flat with no legs. Signed with the name of the artist, village and title.
