Q: I recently picked up this amazing C. Jere sculpture on Craigslist for a steal. My idea is that I would like to mount it on the wall but also hide some sort of lighting element behind it to really make the dimension of the sculpture pop!


What kind of lights could I use to do this that would be small enough to tuck away behind the sculpture?

I think Christmas lights might be a tad too much. The sculpture pops out of the wall by about 3 1/2". I took a picture of the side to show the hollow area between the two layers of the sculpture.
