Rainbow-colored `holographic movie' showing a skier in ski cap and sweater, sticking his head and arms through a large picture frame that is positioned in front of him, with tree branches in background; a ski pole also projects through the picture frame, and he holds a smoking pipe in his left hand; 2 cans of beer sit on a ledge in front of the frame; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown looking down at and reaching towards one of the cans of beer; as viewer moves to right, he picks up the can and smiles while looking at and talking to the viewer; as viewer moves to right, the scene also rotates, so that whereas at the beginning, the viewer is looking at the scene from the left, at the end, one is looking at the scene from the right.

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.
