PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Hand-painted Russian trinket box in the Palekh style depicting a Troika, a traditional sleigh. Originally a centre for artists painting icons, the village of Palekh was revitalised after the Russian revolution when artists applied the same techniques to painting miniatures onto papier-mâché. This traditional handicraft usually depicts characters from literary works, fairy tales and songs, painted with local bright paints over a black background with golden highlights. The poetic rendering of the Palekh characters, decorative nature of the landscapes and architecture and elongated proportions of the figures go back to the icon-painting traditions.
