Sergey Zotov's unique style and attention to detail have won him recognition in the recent lacquer art books, "New Visions; Russian Lacquer Miniatures" and "Russian Lacquer Miniatures, Palekh, Mstiora, Fedoskino, Kholui," and his "Cinderella" is sure to win your heart. The mother of pearl rooftops of the king's palace beckon beyond park like grounds and an elaborate gilded gate. Gold foil underlay twinkles throughout the scene, replacing more traditional painted golden accents, adding a distinctive warm glow. The difficult technique giving testimony to Zotov's mastery of his medium. The rich, autumnal palette perfectly calls to mind the magical of the "golden hour" just after sunset, and gives the scene an intimate feel. Beneath an ancient tree, the fairy godmother's magic wand dips and bobs as young Cinderella is clothed in a dazzling golden gown. Her enchanted coachmen invite her to board the fairy coach as she waves a grateful goodbye to her magical benefactress. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed discreetly on the sides with the title and artist's name. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is deep rose. The base of this piece is flush.
