Shadow play
2009-12-22

Shadow play

Shadow play or shadow puppetry is an ancient form of storytelling and entertainment that uses opaque, often intricately designed figures in front of an illuminated backdrop to to create the illusion of moving images.

Today, puppets made of leather and moved on sticks are used to tell dramatic versions of traditional fairy tales and myths.
