The sun hangs low in the sky as an entire peasant family yanks on the enormous turnip, trying to pry it from the ground. Despite the help of the family pets, it won't budge! Perhaps if they asked the mouse nicely. . .Meanwhile, the crows and chickens romp through the garden, happily gobbling seeds while everyone else is preoccupied. The scene is well painted in Evgeniya Nebogatova has an unmistakable style, with lots of gold and silver accents. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. there is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush. A whimsical work. --BOX1131
