Silhouette ...An outline of a solid object (as cast by its shadow)
I have always had an eclectic taste in art. My favorites range from impressionistic watercolors to modern photography (and pretty much everything in between).
There was a time, many moons ago, when I managed a large art gallery of original art on the waterfront in San Francisco. It was a completely awesome job.
The silhouette above is a piece I found in an antique store - it is about the size of a postcard. It is a paper cut-out, done by hand.
I like to imagine that when a branch falls from the old maple tree in my backyard, the fairies are playing seesaw as they do in this wonderful piece.
