Father Frost and Faerie Spring watch nervously from the forest as their daughter, the Snowmaiden, reveals herself to her foster parents. Father Frost's doubts are evident, but Faerie Spring has convinced him that it is time their child went out into the world. The elderly couple desperately wanted a child, and the joy is plain on their faces now that their prayers have been answered. The vibrant, spring like palette brings the scene to life, while contrasting beautifully with the snowy darkness of Father Frost's bad mood. Golden accents sparkle, giving a luxurious feel. The sides are adorned with a motif of spring flowers with a golden shimmer. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on its flush base with the title, artist's name (T. Rachkova), date, and materials used. It stands on four round legs. A charming fairy tale scene
