Oh a major puzzle! I'm sure it took a long time to make those---I like the shadows too!!

Sarah

Fascinating artworks and they make beautiful shadows.

diane

What interesting information about the artist. He was imaginative and it must be fun trying to read the words.

As one of those old printers from the days Martha mentioned, I can see the type is backward and therefore the shadow should read forward. With the cylindrical shape, however, you'd have to wait for the light to be coming from different directions in order to read all the way around.
If, however, the sculptures are evenly lit from within, the reflection cast on the ground, all the way around, could be read by someone who can read Latin, or the language of the Caloosa Indians, or both.
Too complicated for this old printer. LOL

Thomas Edison was a busy man, wasn't he? I always know that I'm going to learn something when I visit your blog and it's 100% that the photos will be great.

Feel free to send some warm weather up my way.....in case you have too much of it.

Happy weekend. donna

Great find! I knew about the sculpture at the CIA, but last I heard they had only cracked one. That last one's gotta be a doozy.

Martha Z

Intriguing, it seems they are meant to be projected but a printer from days when type was set by hand would probably have no trouble interpreting it.

Catherine

these script shadows are indeed enigmatic - great shots!

I, for one, am glad that the CIA can't crack every code!

A SEEKER OF SHADOWS

A seeker of shadows, they say,
Will keep her eyes peeled night and day
For resident shades
That haunt the dark glades
And never come outside to play.
