Old Man winter carefully drapes a warm coat around the young girl's shoulders, as the creatures of the forest gather round to help keep her warm. Her father drives the family sleigh back to the village, overcome with grief at obeying his wife's order to leave the girl in the frozen woods. The scene is beautifully painted in soft, sherbet tones with glittering gold and silver accents. This box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name, village, and date of completion. There is a hinge at the top, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of the piece is flush. The artist, G. Zykova is a talented young artist and has a box featured in the book, "New Visions; Russian Lacquer Miniatures."--BOX1509
