Hand shadows art (Shadowgraphy)

    Shadowgraphy or ombromanie is the art of performing a story or show using images made by hand shadows. It can be called "cinema in silhouette". Performers are titled as a shadowgraphist or shadowgrapher. The art has declined since the late 19th century when electricity became available to homes because light bulbs and electric lamps do not give off good shadows and because cinema and television were becoming a new form of entertainment. Shadows are greatly defined by candlelight; therefore hand shadows were common in earlier centuries (source: Wikipedia).

Shadow hand (puzzle game)

    "A forest of pines lies at the edge of a large mountain. The trees stretch from the middle of the slope down to its base. The shadows of these giants stretch out under the moonlight. The moonbeams filter through the thin canopy above, lighting up the undergrowth with a skeletal light that makes the scene almost eerie. "
