Greenish-blue hologram (shadowgram) of a wine glass, with good 3D-effect, as glass appears to break the image plane; holographic plate is set within black plastic matting; adhered to the matting just under the hologram is a ledge made out of 2 pieces of black plastic; an intentionally-broken goblet comes with the work and can be adhered to the ledge; when viewer stands at correct angle, viewer sees actual broken goblet in foreground and realistic-looking image of entire goblet in hologram in background.

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.
