Rich, warm tones and a bold, graphic style call to mind medieval tapestries in this work by Viktor Kuznetsov. His works are in private collections around the world. It is very easy to recognize his boxes because V. Kuznetsov has his own painting style. He has innovated the traditional style of Mstera lacquer miniature and created his own fantastic world inhabited by powerful kings, pure virgins, brave knights, and mythic animals. The box is constructed from papier-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while bright red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge has been fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests on four rounded feet.
