Young Prince Ivan has followed his enchanted thread to princess of the Golden Kingdom, Elena the Beautiful. Alas, Elena's has fallen into the clutches of the evil Whirlwind. Smoky tendrils weave themselves through her golden hair, holding her fast in the Whirlwind's clutches. Ivan is smitten by the princess, and vows to return and free her after he defeats the Whirlwind, who also has Ivan's mother and Elena's sisters imprisoned. Delicate golden accents sparkle through the scene, complemented by the abstract, hazy copper of the Golden Kingdom and the rough edges gold foil underlay sparkling beneath. Dense tangles of golden flowers and vines cover the sides, and the concave base features the golden outline of a crowned bird, symbolic of Ivan's victory and escape, against an elegant golden design in Chibisov's signature reverse painting style. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid and its underside with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer.
