Shadow Puppets with your hands

Always nice to know some shadow puppets you can make with your hands to amuse your (little) guests 🙂
According to the original caption, the various examples of hand shadow puppetry shown in this picture can be reproduced to cast on a wall the silhouettes of the following animals: a reindeer, a chamois, a ewe, a camel, a pig, a goose, a wolf, a goat, an elephant, a hare, a bear, an ox, a dog, a butterfly and an ass.

This picture was taken from the Dictionnaire encyclopédique Trousset, also known as the Trousset encyclopedia, Paris, 1886 – 1891 and found here.
