Measurements: 11 1/4 in x 9 in

Fifteen 2"w X 1 3/4"h holograms arranged in 3 vertical rows of 5, set in a wood frame, with each row separated by thin wood strips (a few of the strips have fallen off); each hologram contains a unique image, including a crystal, shadowgrams of trees, test tube, and male and female heads from dolls or statues (one hologram showing a statue of a woman with her arm extended toward the viewer has an excellent 3-D quality); 4 holograms in bottom left corner show one combined image, seemingly a satellite dish with a honeycomb pattern in background; greenish-blue color.

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.
