Three inch skull (non-human ?), with jaw open, propped up on 2 sets of human leg and feet bones, and 2 sets of human arm and hand bones, to form a monster-like creature; bones are arranged so that feet and hands appear close to foreground; hypodermic needle sits upright in foreground, as though the creature is holding it; good 3-D effect as viewer can `look around' much of the skull; rainbow-colored image.

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.
