The painting on the jewelry box depicts Stenka Razin - a legendary Cossack military leader who fought for justice and headed a major peasant uprising in 1670-1671. The author managed to express the fierce spirit of the riot and to show different characters among those listening to Razin. We can see that the people around him have very different attitudes towards his words. The work rose great interest among foreign connoisseurs who could see it during the international exhibition in France in 1925. After the exhibition the author received an order for 20 more copies of the jewelry box.
