The Silhouette-snapper

This very old handicraft was in danger of becoming oblivious as our annual trade-markets were swarmed with paper-profile-cutters, origami-artists, cartoonists and watercolour-painters. Whatever happened to that good old Dutch character, the Silhouette-snapper? Fortunately, there still remains one active association in The Netherlands with members coming from all over the country. One of these artisans ( purely as a hobby ) will present you with a very real expressionistic impression of yourself, snapped from Dutch wedding-toast, strictly according to the traditional rules of the trade. The spectator will be baffled by the original way in which this practically extinct handicraft –literally- receives the breath of life!
