A rustic net swooshes through the air on its way to capture a brilliantly colored beetle. The bugcatcher watches his tool whizzing through the air with the serene detachment of one who is a master of a task. A bevy of bugs scuttle for shelter amidst the swirling foliage. Delicate skeins of gold dance through the background, adding a playful twinkle to the bold colors of the scene. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. It rests on four round legs. The box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, village and artist's name, D. Molodkin. "The Blue Bugcatcher" could be called the signature work by the renowned Mstera artist, whose unique style has won over many collectors throughout the world.--BOX1075
