Series of eggshells; egg closest to foreground lies on its side, with the larger portion facing the viewer; a large hole in this portion of the shell allows the viewer to see inside, where one sees what appears to be a series of eggs, which creates a tunnel-like effect; behind this front egg are 5 more eggs in a line which curves off towards the right, creating an illusion of infinite repetition; each of these eggs is standing, with a large hole in each egg's shell; rainbow-colored image; signed and dated by artist at bottom.


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.
