In short, this tale is about a young man, Emelya, who finds a very special pike that promises to fulfill all his wishes. Here we can see Yemelya riding the stove( many years ago in Russian villages stove served as a bed sometimes) on the front lid of the box and magike pike on the back of the box The scene is painted in a unique style using only two tones: white and blue to imitate the world-famous Gzel porcelain. The costumes of the characters and the stars in the sky are detailed with brilliant gold paint. The box is beautifully decorated with golden ornaments on all four sides and painted inside as a tortoise shell. Mother of pearl is inlaid in the lid of the box creating beautiful shimmery surface of the frozen river. The box is constructed from papier-mache. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name. The size of this amazing artwork is 6" x 4" x 1.25".
