Hi All

Sorry this has been a bit late, but I changed my mind at the last minute as to what I was going to post :oops:

I had the idea for this at lunchtime, when I was sitting on the beach at my lunch break having an ice cream in the sun (a tiny clue !!)

By the time I got home the sun had gone in, 'cos it was night time  :D  So I set it up with my desk light.

The clues are .........

1. Of Italian origin.

2. Celebrating 350 years in 2012 (May 9th)

Good Luck !!!!!!

If it wasn't for the clues, I would have said a witch on a stick.
After reading the clues, I became clueless  ;)

Well here is the answer, the shaddow is of Old Red Nose, or as he is better known, Mr Punch.

The character of Mr Punch originated in the "Comedie de'Arte" players of 16th centuty Naples, where he was known as Punchinello

Having arrived in England from Italy for The Rennaisance celebrations of 1662, a puppet show featuring Punchinello was seen by Samuell Peypes in the grounds of St Pau'ls Church, Covent Garden. He wrote of it in his diary, on the 9th May 1662, and the Punch and Judy Fellowship take tat date as his official Birthday, so next year is his 350th Birthday

Well done Martin, I think this means you have to do the next one  :D  :D  :D  :D

Also well done Graham, who I think got it, but his answer dissappeared..........wrll he is a Magician  :D  :D

Here we go then. I was hoping to make my entry a little harder after Pheonix's gentle intro but looking at the photo I am not sure I have.

Here it is:
[attachment=0:1j00lbfd]shadow.jpg[/attachment:1j00lbfd]

I didn't have much time tonight and so it had to be something simple and quick... took me ages to work out what to make though, just over 2 hours.

There was once a famous one of these from Cheshire.

Good luck,
Martin.
