A while back I found these images of Victorian shadowboxes, and I think they are pretty awesome. I saw the large, rectangular one at the Staten Island Museum last year. The animals inside are supposed to represent the diversity of wildlife that used to be on Staten Island. In person, it looks absurd...a giant box filled to the max with taxidermied squirrels, pheasants, weasels, etc. ...I love it!
