Prince Elisey rides off in search of the princess, as the "wind" kindly gives him directions to find her. She is being buried by the seven knights in the coffin at the cave (one must be hiding there), but perhaps there is more to come, which you can read in our translation here. The rectangular box is very cute and colorful. The wind and Prince Elisey provide a dynamic flavor to the work, while the funeral for the princess punctuates this action with a solemn moment. There is a gold ornament around the drawwing, while the sides are black. The box sits flat and has a red interior. The artist wrote his or her initials at the bottom of the drawing, as well as the title and village.
