One of 3 glass panels that form a triptych showing one continuous scene of a futuristic art gallery; this panel consists of 3 pieces of glass laminated together; image shows a large room with 3 fluted columns along the right side; a male figure can be seen on the right; in center or room is a grouping of steps; at top of steps appears to be a window in which exists a forest scene. A few floating cubes of light appear around the room (perhaps representing holograms); rainbow-colored image; floor of room covered with shadows; title and creator's signature appear at bottom of glass.

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.
