Shape object is an object through which you can draw different shapes, basically shape is a type of UIElement which helps you to draw different shapes to the screen and due to the reason this is an UIElement it used inside the panel element and most controls.

One of the main capabilities of Silverlight is to make user interfaces for web sites. Silverlight's scope is not to replace HTML-based web sites, but instead to augment HTML. You should think of Silverlight as something that enables you to create content inside a web page, not something you would use to create replacement content for your existing web pages.

Silverlight provides a number of ready-to-use Shape objects. All shape objects inherit from the Shape class. Available shape objects include Ellipse, Line, Path, Polygon, Polyline, and Rectangle.

Example of an Shape draw:
