This image of a pretty young blue-eyed girl with a basket of daisies has a very kind sweetness to it and has totally won us over. The bird at the top right seems to lightly grab the end of one of her pigtails, as if only to make his presence known to her. "'Privet' (hello) little bird!". The box is also unique in that the oblong shape of the box is quite unusual and rarely seen. Its height ranges from one inch in front to 1.5 inches in back. And one can help but notice the pink color which lends a feminine and delicate touch to the work. The pink is not only on the top, but extends to the sides, the bottom, and even to the inside! The sides and bottom are decorated also with thin dark red lines drawn in the shape of plants and flowers. The box is in perfect shape all around. The artist signed the work on the bottom with her name (M. Khitruk), title, village and year of completion.
