The personification of the Morning Star is thrust skyward by an art nouveau tangle of richly embroidered drapery. Brilliant rays of golden sunlight stream from her brow as the night sky retreats with her ascent. The unusual treatment of light and shadow, and perspective give the scene a dramatic feel. The body of the box is a deep red, with muted golden decoration, echoing the warmth of the scene. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (N. Zimin), village, and date of completion. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer.
