This holiday brooch is a festive way to bring cheer to your days during the holiday season. The painting of this brooch is a traditional Russian art form with its roots in icon painting. After the fall of Imperial Russia, the artists who had adorned churches and homes with their icon paintings found a way to continue to make a living by applying their talents to papier-mache boxes and other items. The backside of each brooch features a pin so it may be fastened to a scarf, lapel, or other item of clothing. The delicate painting and gold leaf detail on the brooch is covered with layers of transparent glossy lacquer.
Hand carved and hand painted; made in Russia.Signed by the artist.
