The first that we see on the foreground is a boat with an emblem of St-Peterburg`s Science Academy. The girl with violin inspires the scientist to new discoveries. The scene happens in the time of Carneval. Katherine ll loved to arrange this celebrations very much. Everything is going on in the period of White nights, making surrounding world unusual and even magical. The scientist and his muse are admiring the beauty of night town and writing their impressions to the journal.
There are many interesting things happening aroud - Harlequin entertains everyone but deep in his soul dreams to build a ship. A girl with carneval mask is like a fairy who wants the Soldier and his Ballerina to avoid the fate of burning, like it was in H. C. Anderson`s fairy-tale, but to continue their love. She pushes their little boat to the magical voyage through the channels of St-Petersburg which has a hope of continue.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The box's interior is covered with red lacquer. On the lid's interior I have also written in gold the title of the work, Fedoskino, Knyazev Sergey and the year of 2013.
