Kholuy Lacquer Boxes

Lacquer miniatures are distinguished in multifarious Russian decorative, applied and folk art by their uniqueness and beauty, and the gift and craftsmanship of their creators. Handmade, labour-consuming and intricate, lacquer miniatures have much in common with easel painting. Nevertheless, these are pieces of applied art because painting here is utilitarian and inseparable with the object. A lacquer miniature is an intimate type of art, the minute details of which may be missed in exhibition halls. Pieces with Russian folklore themes enchant by their genuine sincerity and purity, extol beauty and evoke the sublime in deeds and aspirations. Free from perfidy, evil, violence and grief, they give a graphic portrayal of folk wisdom, triumphant justice and truth. Kholui miniatures are imbued with optimism, which makes them especially popular, and are designed to give joy and to please.
