The beautiful papier-mache lacquer box is hand painted a Russian artist from the village of Palekh. The picture of the Russian artist VM Vasnetsov, written in 1880. Currently stored in the Nizhny Novgorod State Art Museum. On his creation, the artist captured the dream of people about flying. At that time, airplanes had not been invented yet, but many wanted to soar into the sky, to the height of a bird's flight.For this in ancient times, people made wings, then hang-gliders, balloons. This dream was reflected in ancient folk tales, in which heroes can move like this, as Viktor Vasnetsov showed. The painting "Carpet-plane" is multifaceted. In its center we see a carpet, which spread its angled wings, like a bird. He is confidently wearing a beautifully dressed hero of a fairy tale. He holds with one hand the cage in which the Firebird is. This box can be a very good present or a great addition to your collection! X 6.29 x 1.96 inch. (1 inch= 2,54 cm).
