The Geese Are Flying (Гуси Летят). Fedoskino, 1984. (Signed by the artist.)  A young girl stands on a country road and watches a formation of geese fly south. She takes her silk kerchief and waves to them. In Russian culture, the goose is a common term of endearment for one's wife. Also, geese flying together in a "V" formation symbolizes wisdom.The subject of this simple, yet elegant, box is uncommon with its elements of socialist realism. Oil, lacquer, hinged papier-mache box. 6¼"x 3¼"x 1¼". 1 only.

(Note: box is in about fine vintage condition, some light wear, but no defects.)
