Casket Palekh "Crimean fantasies" is a handmade work made by master Burdakov based on Russian folk tales.
Truly unique work. It seems that the characters themselves, painted on the casket, are amazed at how colorful and filled the picture turned out. The lid depicts the extraordinary beauty of the mermaid, which the artist paints. The master placed in his picture the Crimean mountain Ayu-Dag (bear mountain) and the castle "Swallow's Nest". On the side of the casket, you can see an angel watching the plots of Russian folk tales depicted by the master. A golden painted lock with a key harmoniously completes the image of the casket.
The process of creating Palekh papier-mâché boxes is quite painstaking. After drawing the picture on a special enamel, all details of the picture are framed with gold leaf, therefore unique Palekh products are produced in a single copy.
The traditional craftsmanship of the ancient icon painting of Palekh was combined with the art of everyday objects, forming a new type of decorative art - Palekh lacquer miniature. The rich experience of icon painting with its linearity and patterned turned into decorative and applied art.
