Alexander Chirkov is the author of this beautiful Russian lacquer box from Fedoskino village.  The name of the miniature is "Frozen River" and features the picturesque Russian countryside in winter.
Here the artist has dramatically painted the river running on the edge of small village near winter forest. The river is covered with shiny ice and a lonely fisherman's boat is frozen in it.

The scene is masterfully drawn in various shades of pink, white, gray, brown and light blue oils. Silver powder is used for highlighting and filling the painting with almost unnoticeable sparkle. Mother of pearl inlaid in papier mache creates a three dimentional stunning effect.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes its interior. The lid is hinged from the top of the box. the size of the box is 4.25" x 3" x 0.7". The work is signed with the artist's name. It would make a valuable and lovely addition to one's collection.
