Russian lacquer boxes Fiery - bird
Palekh miniature is a Russian folk handicraft of tempera painting on lacquered articles made of papier-mache; based on the local icon-painting tradition, it appeared in the village of Palekh of the Ivanovo Region not until the early 1920s. Palekh masters like to resort to folk Russian fairy tales for miniature plots: this lacquer box with a scene from the tale of Fiery Bird tells a whole story about Prince Ivan who gains his sweetheart with the help of his magic friend Wolf and the no less magic Fiery Bird. Traditionally saturated colours against the black background add to the expressiveness of the image. Sizes - 17x9x3,5 cm. Weight - 0.25 kg. Read about Palekh Miniature Painting
Price: 56.4 $
