Please note: This exact box has already been sold, however Ms. Smirnova has graciously agreed to do a similar one. Some of the details may be slightly different, but the composition and spirit of the piece will remain the same. Depending on her work load, the normal time frame for this will be 3-6 months. She will be painting it just for you, and will allow the possibility for a minor change in the box should you desire one. We will guarantee that it will look as good or better than the one here. The box will come with exquisite side ornamentation, although we do not have a side picture to show you here. If you are not happy with the box you receive for any reason, we will gladly refund the total amount paid. A down payment of 50% will be required for her to start work.

This is one of Vera Smirnova's most complicated pieces and its easy to see why when you consider how many characters that she has painted. The theme comes from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Wild Geese", which you can read here. Partly due to the grand architecture all around, the atmosphere of the composition is magnificent to look at and seems to transport you into a completely new fairy tale realm. A very impressive work.
