Product Description

Kholui is known throughout the world as a centre of papier-mache lacquer miniatures and famous in Russia in the past for its skillful icon painters.
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.
Kholui miniatures are imbued with optimism, which makes them especially popular, and are designed to give joy and to please. Their execution is, however, a complicated, intense and time-consuming process, justifiably referred to by painters as the "pangs of creation".
