This box that features a moment from the Russian folk fairy-tale "Geese and Swans" was painted by a talented Kholui artist, Kosterina Olga.
This tale is about a little boy, Ivanushka, who was kidnapped by the wicked birds, Geese and Swans, by the order of Baba-Yaga. The boy's sister, Alyonushka, started searching her brother, and found him in Baba-Yaga's house. Later the children could successfully escape from that place, but Geese and Swans began pursuing them. Only with the help of the Apple-Tree, the River and the Stove, the children were saved.
Here we can see a moment when Aleonushka has stolen brother Ivanushka from Baba-Yaga hut. Baba Yaga is sending Geese and Swans to get Ivanushka back.
The scene is framed with a gold ornament; the box's sides are decorated with the intricate gold leafy ornamentation as well.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged at the top, and the box rests on a wavy platform. Signed with the artist's name, the village of Kholui, and the title.
