Narnia Lacquer Box

Narnia-themed lacquered box by Russian artist Vera Smirnova.

I love the detail on this piece and how the story of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe has been culturally translated. The artist drew on the imagery for the movie, not the book, as the polar bears and armored centaurs attest… as is High King Peter riding on his unicorn.
