A silhouette is a sole-coloured image of people's shapes in the form of black shadows against the light background or white shadows against the dark background. On this image the object's outlines must be expressive, having no extra details. A person's portrait silhouette is usually a profile portrait; the silhouette allows recognizing a certain person's image, his gestures, mimics and even posture. People's silhouettes can be drawn or cut with scissors.

At your festive event an artist-silhouettist entertains your guests by cutting people's silhouettes. A silhouette is usually cut from black paper, generally, in classical style sideways.
