A young woman out fetching water with her dog encounters a young man on horseback. The dog shrinks back from the massive, unfamiliar animal, while the horse, intrigued, leans closer. The humans watch with amusement as the horse's efforts at friendliness are met with soft whimpers as the dog tucks his tail between his legs and backs away. The scene is nicely painted in a striking limited palette, with wintry white and grey punctuated by occasional earth tones. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name (P. Sennitskij) and village There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The flush base is adorned with an intricate pattern of silver which creates a lovely, swirling optical illusion.
