Like the moon against a dark and cloudy sky, the personification of night emerges from beneath a diaphanous black veil with a mischievous grin. Her skin seems to glow pale gold against the rich blue background and gilded accents sparkle in her hair. A wide eyed sprawls languidly across her lap, his gazing at the viewer. Glistening strands of gold create a tangled, ethereal border to the scene. The black lacquer background of the sides and flush base explode with glittering triangles of silver and gold foil, calling to mind stars strewn across the night. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name (Roman Chibisov), and village. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is deep red lacquer.
