From Discovery to Mastery: Creating “The Ultimate Shadow Box”

By , August 2nd, 2022

Discovery

Arts, sports, science, dance, engineering, music, cooking, film, technology – our lives are rich with so many wonders that we have brought into our cultures. But these ideas, items, and inventions weren’t always a part of our world, and they definitely didn’t start at the level we experience them now. The beauty about humans is we have the discoverers and the pioneers; and then we have “masters” who take an idea and develop it to its greatest potential.

The concept of a shadow box is no different. The term shadow box, with the first known use in 1891, refers to a display case with an enclosed glass front that contains objects presented in a thematic grouping. The positioning and different depths of the objects create a dramatic visual effect. It offers a great way to preserve while still enjoy viewing memorabilia.
