Three holographic glass plates arranged on a black-painted wooden sculputre; each of the identically sized plates stands vertically within grooves in the wooden platform; the front plate sits 2" off the base, the middle plate 7", and the back plate 11"; when viewed with laser light placed behind the top hologram, bare tree branches are visible in the back plate only; no images visible in the front or center plates; non-holographic tree silhouettes are visible on the plates in any light.

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.
