A curtsey (also spelled curtsy or courtesy) is a traditional gesture of greeting, in which a girl or woman bends her knees while bowing her head. It is the female equivalent of male bowing in Western cultures. Miss Manners characterizes its knee bend as deriving from a "traditional gesture of an inferior to a superior." T
A very beautiful lacquer box with exquisite and sharp
details painted with a one hair brush. Wonderful colors blend into each other
making it a one well-designed and unique composition. The box itself is made
of the highest quality papier-mache and is covered with three layers of lacquer.
Paper-mache does not absorb the paint and it is also protected by a thick layer
of lacquer. This way colors will not fade and will stay vivid and bright for
many dozens of years to come.
Lacquer boxes from Mstera village, usually have the lightest colors. Artists
there almost never choose black for their backgrounds, and instead use light
blue, pink, gold or ivory colors. With the addition of these colors, landscapes
generally play a more prominent role in Mstera works, and people and objects
tend to take a place within the background setting rather than remain separate
from it. In Mstera, a wide range of artistic talent exists. While some artists
paint dynamic and elaborate scenes from fairy tales or famous battles, others
concentrate on exquisite floral designs.
