Camel Silhouettes

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Portraits and scenes cut from paper date back to ancient Greece.  The word silhouette comes from the Frenchman Etienne de Silhouette who lived in the early 1700's.  He was famous for his free cut portraits.

In England, in the days of Queen Victoria, these same types of pictures were called shades or shadow portraits.
