Additionally there are 7 black cards with a faint transfer of an image for projects that were never completed? The completed works include a variety of views - owl in trees, figures dancing, windmill etc. Please request photos to view all 10 examples. Scherenschnitte which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of paper cutting design. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 16th century, and was brought to Colonial America in the 18th century by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania. .
