Deep in the forest, a young couple is going about the business of catching of two elusive birds. The young woman reaches out to gently touch them while the man concentrates strategically with net in hand. In the background, a tree peeks through the beautiful blue background. Every part of this box gleams vibrantly from the intricate golden threads placed throughout. The sides and bottom of the box are adorned with beautiful golden bird designs. This box is signed with the village, year, title, and artist (R. Chibisova). It is made of high quality papier mache with a red lacquer interior. The hinge is at the top. The piece is flush.
