Shadow theater has come a long way from the days when inanimate cut-outs were used against light, to create shadows that would tell a story. From fingers to men, shadows today are created by many animate sources, which help create magic and attraction towards the art every time you see it.

Some have aced it. Do you recall the last time you cheered up a friend using shadows of your finger to tell a story?

Little do we know that they worked day and night to get each piece together to perfection.
