The Magic Pike (Волшебная Щука). Also known as "By the Pike's Wish" ("По щучьему веленью"). This immensely enjoyable fairy tale features Yemelia, the lazy and ill-favored third brother, who spends all his time keeping himself warm atop of the stove. One day, while fishing, he hooks a pike, which, in return for its life, offers Yemelia magical powers. A series of adventures follows, including the transformation of the stove into a flying device, and ultimately, the wedding of Yemelia with the daughter of the Tsar.

Nicely detailed lost-wax casting from the Kasli Iron Works in Yekaterinburg (Ekaterinburg) in the Ural Mountains, Russia. This significant mountain ridge forms the border between Europe and Asia. Kasli casting (named after the town of Kasli) is a metallurgical and metal-working plant which arose on the banks of the river Iset, and was one of the best of its kind in its day. This figure is an internal market Kasli figure with no stamp or date but was probably made in the 1970s or early 1980s. 6½"x5½"x4". 5 pounds. Rich black color with a touch of rust.

The face of the boy is Slavic. A nice touch are the two buckets with handles with one being tipped over. The boy wears "valenki" on his feet. The boy and buckets are attached by screws onto the base. He wears a classic Russian fur coat and hat in which he is usually depicted in other mediums, such as Russian lacquer boxes or book illustrations.
