Long sheet of holographic film that is mounted on an acrylic cylinder. Viewer sees the creator from shoulders up, wearing a tattered paper mask that covers his face from forehead to top of mouth. As viewer moves around hologram, eyes and mouth move and grimace; back of his head is visible. This hologram is made to be held around the head of a large assemblage of a fantastical baboon.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
