The scene painted on the box's lid depicts Father Frost and his daughter Snowmaiden in a winter forest.
The palette incorporates blue and white oils as the action takes place in winter, with addition of gold and silver metal paints to give a feeling of magic and splendor. The artist demonstrates his unsurpassed skill while painting the charackter's festive attires. The effect of festivity is strengthened by a piece of mother-of-pear inlaid into the costumes of both character; it shimmers beautifully with bright green and blue tints. The third piece of mother-of-pear is shining through the beautiful hat-set (cocoshnik) of Snowmaiden.The branches of trees covered with white fluffy snow, that are also expressively painted.
Rich gold line frames the composition.The box's sides imitates the color of gray marble; the bottom is black, while the interior of the box is traditionally red.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box has a hinge to the left from the scene and rests on a flat base. It is signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino and the year (2014).
