With flowers in her hair, a bird in her hand, and a big smile on her face this maiden is a great personification of Spring, as the box is titled. The radiant gold leaf in her dress, and in the flower and birds, contrasts beautifully with the dark blues around her, which also glow with color. The blue color is continued on the sides and bottom, this time with a pretty nice phosphorescent effect (not visible in the photos here). There are several golden line ornaments on the sides, as well. The box was done by Fedoskino artist Novoselieva and is made out of high quality papier mache with a hinge at the left. The interior is red. It is signed on the bottom of the drawing with the name of the artist, village and title. If you are feeling rich, a perfect companion piece to this box would be "Fall" by the same artist.
