This is the first shadow box in my collection that breaks my unofficial rule of not showing the title of the game. However, the title screen for Super Mario World was so beautifully crafted that I had to make an exception.
Super Mario World had an art style that raised the bar for all future video games. The world was so colorful and cheerful and it still holds up beautifully over 25 years later. Imagine seeing it for the first time as a kid!
I love this scene because you can easily predict what's gonna happen next. If you've played the game, I bet you can already hear Yoshi's gulp sound in your head.
This glass-framed shadow box measures 10x12.5 inches and the viewport matches the 4:3 aspect ratio of the original scene. All of the images are printed on high-quality matte cardstock and laser cut for precision. The sprites are layered and raised to create a three-dimensional image that brings the scene to life. Pictures do not do it justice!
