4” high by 2 ½” wide

This is such a cool box. Different from any that Russell has made, it tells a complete story of the animals and plants in the forest. Each of the four sides depict a different animal – a deer, a bear, a mountain lion, and a skunk. The terrific lid is incised with stylized evergreen, and on the other side, oak leaves. The deep red that Russell achieves on this box is marvelous. The red medallions, encircled with super fine natural brown heishi, are so beautifully set against a black mica background. The lid and all the medallions are highly polished, and the lid is capped off with a Kingman turquoise stone in the center. It’s a great new piece.
