The young girl is dwarfed by the massive Morozko (Old Man Winter). Her cool head and good manners have warmed Morozko's frosty heart. Though he keeps a gruff expression, he pities the girl, and has brought her warm clothing to protect her from winter's chill, and treasure to ensure a happy life. (To read the whole fairy tale, click here.) Thoughtfully placed golden accents add texture to the creamy tones of the well painted scene. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Fiskova), and village. It stands on four round legs, and bears the Kholui insignia and the phrase, "Made in Russia" on its base. A striking traditional work.--BOX1386
