Alexander Chirkov is the author of this stunning box. It is called "The Oak Forest" and features the picturesque Russian countryside in summer. Here the artist has dramatically painted the oak forest, and the road running through the field to a small village.
The scene is masterfully drawn in various shades of green and light blue oils. Silver powder is used for highlighting and filling the painting with almost unnoticeable sparkle. Gold paint details some of the plants painted in the foreground.
The box is originally designed. It has the slopping lid that helps the artist to reproduce the vast expenses of countryside. Its exterior is decorated with original and attractive gold ornamentation.
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 scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, and the year of 2007.
