We are sure you all know how shadows are formed and that with a little bit of imagination you can have a fun with them. So let us present you Jeremy the Ragdoll cat. He’s a fluffy little boy who can't get enough of his fatherly teaser wand. But to make things little different, his owners decided to present his play through the art of shadow performance also known as shadow play. Shadow play is an ancient form of storytelling and entertainment where figures are held between a source of light and a screen. Here, you can see a real Cat playing in the cutes Shadow play technic. Jeremy the Ragdoll is the great hunter (and his shadow as well). So let us tell you a bit more about this oldest form of puppetry in the world. It is known as the precursor to modern movies and it takes a true mastery to make puppets come alive under a lamp light. The story of shadow play dramas have a long history and some say it’s over 2000 years old. According to one beautiful legend, it first originated during the Han Dynasty. The legend said that Emperor Wu became devastated, inconsolable and completely heartbroken after his favorite young concubine had died. He ignored all the affairs of the state and ordered his officers to find a way to bring his beloved back to life. Unable to fulfill their emperor’s demands, officers had the idea to recreate the shape of passed concubine using leather pieces and painted clothes. Using an oil lamp, they could make her shadow move, thus bringing her back to life. After seeing the shadow play, Emperor Wu and his heart began to recover. This love story is recorded in the book titled, “The History of the Han Dynasty.”
