Shadow Mount displays
Shadow mount is a much larger black, wooden, block that is attached to the back of the metal print. Shadow mounts, because of their larger contact surface, tend to hold the metal print flatter and more rigidly. They also provide a finished black back, if the print is viewed from the side. Shadow Mounts hold the metal print a half inch away from the wall, so the metal print appears to “float” in front of the wall.
