These photographs do not truly represent the beauty and Intricacy of Lithophanes.

To truly appreciate the Lithophane you must see them in person.


Lithophanes were first invented in the early 1800's. What makes a lithophane so unusual is that it requires light to be seen properly. The image is created not by a film or by paint but by the different thicknesses of the translucent materials.
