In this portrait by Fedoskino artist Svyatchenkov, a confident well-to-do Boyarina seems to be thinking about something interesting. (And she is looking directly at you,right?!) Svyatchenkov did this lovely traditional work with a high degree of precision and a soft color palette. The gold in her handsome kokoshink and in parts of her clothing is rather muted and does not interfere with an appreciation of the artwork, including her pretty facial features and eyes. A more radiant gold line ornament frames the drawing. The sides and the bottom are a mixture of black and silver, with a trace of gold, too. The inside is traditional red. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and has a hinge at the left. Signed at the bottom with the name of the artist and village.
