The decorative illumination setup is designed to be used on wall surfaces etc. The setup consists of a two-part background board (4, 11) whose parts are at different angles to the surface glass (6, 12). This will create a threedimensional impression. A silhouetted picture (5) has been fitted in front of the surface glass (6, 12); an illumination apparatus (9) is placed behind the silhouette. The illumination apparatus will reflect the light onto the background boards (4, 11) where from the light is further reflected into the room. Then the scenery or other picture will be seen from the room as a silhouette while the light passes through its outlines and openings.
