Top Mstera artist Vladimir Molodkin interprets Mstera lacquer art's traditional soft pastel tones to add an unexpected vibrance to this delightful village scene. Strategically placed deep cobalt blue creates depth behind soft pink and lilac, while subtle variations in value add to the sense of dimension. Clean, crisp lines and skillful contrasts keep the pale tones from appearing washed out, instead imparting the look of early dusk. The graceful arc of a wooden bridge guides the eye through the scene and gives a strong sense of movement. The scene is well painted with lots of detail, and sparkle from well placed metallic accents. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the underside of the lid with the title, artist's name, and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. An enchanting folk scene.--BOX1079
