Proportions for a shadow box display shelving?

last month
last modified: last month

I'm adding this little 14" extension on an existing support wall to give a little bit of a divide between a conversation area and the kitchen. Is there a formula for this like maybe the top and/or bottom shelf being taller or should I just make evenly divided boxes? Each shelf will be 13 inches deep in the two sided area and just 9" deep on the inside alcove (see 2nd pic). I may back light the alcove side shelving but no lighting in the shadowbox. The construction will be 1.5" thick shelves and side.
