Shadow Cards

1900? 2 cards from a larger French set depicting shadows created by hands in front of a screen or wall. The two images here are of "Tortue" and "Aigle." $3 apiece at Foster City, Feb., '97.

The image beneath the shadow in each case is a fable image. In the former, we sit near the finish line and see the tortoise cross in front of the hare. In the latter, we see the eagle sustain the stolen lamb in mid air. No text and blank back.
