History...

According to some accounts of naval history and tradition, when a sailor retires and is departing the ship for the last time,it's considered bad luck for the sailor's shadow to touch land before he/she does.

Thus, the sailor's shipmates would construct a sturdy box, hand-crafted of the finest materials, in which to display mementosof the sailor's accomplishments -- thereby symbolically creating a "shadow" of the sailor.

The box safely contains the sailor's "shadow" until he/she is safely ashore, at which time the shadow box can be givento the sailor in a presentation ceremony.
