The village of Kholui, began painting lacquer miniatures in the 1930's. Kholui artists are less bound to tradition or one particular style, unlike the other villages, and seem to take a bolder approach to their works. Backgrounds for Kholui works are occasionally one solid color (similar to Palekh), but more often than not the artist fills this area with swirls of tone and shade. Partly for this reason, Kholui works appear brighter than Palekh boxes and seem to fill up more of the available space.

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.
