This scene opens up a grandiose view of one the ancient streets of Russia before the viewer's eyes. It helps to imagine how ancient Moscow looked like, and observe everyday life of people who lived then. White-stone cathedrals and splendid palaces rise behind the strong fortifications, the burnished gold onion domes glisten on the sun, and the townspeople are occupied with their daily routine: some of them carry vegetables to the market or from it, the others are riding the carriages... The overall detail in this scene is simply incredible!
The box's exterior is decorated with fine golden scrollwork- on the edges of the lid and on the sides of the box.
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 to the top of the composition, and the box rests flat. The work is signed with the name of the artist, the village of Fedoskino, 03 (2003), the title ("An Old Moscow") under the composition on the box's lid.
