Orthoscopic red image of 6 apples; 4 sit more toward background in a 2X2 formation, while other 2 sits closer to foreground, appearing to float above the image plane; excellent sharpness and clarity; hologram is on a glass plate which is adhered to a slightly larger glass plate; the bottom inch of the larger plate overlaps the holographic plate, creating a lip that was used to place the hologram in a pedestal; 2 holes in the lip allowed the glass plate to be better secured in the pedestal; because of this set-up, a large corner of the lip broke off (now held in place by tape) and a large crack appears at the bottom, due to damage caused by Museum of Holography patrons.
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.
