Painted by Palekh artist M. Populova, this box shows Old Man Winter (Morozko) showing kindness to the young woman who was banished into the cold forest by her evil stepmother. Here Morozko gives her a very warm coat to keep her warm. Other gifts will follow. The box makes a very good impression and one look at it its workmanship and intricacy, including the facial details, tells you that this is a high quality work from this village. A modest border has been drawn around the composition, and a more elaborate one, which incorporates a snowflake design, adorns the sides. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and has a red interior. It does not have a hinge, and stands on three round legs. It is signed at the bottom with the name of the artist, village and year.
