i found this hand photo on the internet and changed it a bit to suit my build, then printed it on photo paper.. i then made a 1x frame a little bigger then a sheet of paper. i made a back out of 1x4 ply wood. i cover everything in the box with alum. tape in hopes to make it brighter.

i mounted led lights where i wanted them to light up. some were not bright enough so i drilled and cut the white plexiglass. i then stacked the white plexiglass, the photo, clear plexiglass, and drilled the corners and screwed them together.
