Even our ancestors loved the idea of having photo frames to treasure pictures or drawings and paintings in their style. The oldest photo frame found dates back to 2nd century A.D. in Egypt. Hanging portraits or pictures in beautifully carved picture frames with intricate designs has always been in fashion. Kings and queens, noble men etc., loved the idea of being painted and hung on walls of their palaces. Even today, people love the idea of clicking pictures of special moments and their beloved ones and putting them in frames so that the pictures remain safe, as well as their memories are cherished. Earlier it was the work of artists, especially Italian artists who excelled in the subtle art of building beautifully designed photo frames from wooden blocks.
