Shadow pictures (Japanese: kage-e)
In Kage-e, men casts shadow of different objects by making amusing poses using props on shōji doors. (Shōji are sliding doors, it consists of translucent paper which is held together by lattice of bamboo.)
The shadow pictures provided an entertainment during occasions like tea ceremony. The Kage-e art prevailed in the latter part of the Edo period (1603-1868).
There is another art in Japan called te-kage-e in which a person uses their hands and props to cast shadows on the shōji doors.
