Four horizontal bands run across a long piece of holographic film; each band contains an identical rainbow-colored hologram, which shows 3 scenes involving a cowboy with a gun; in the left portion, a cowboy looks as though he has been shot and is falling down; the middle portion shows him drawing his revolver from his holster; the right portion shows him blowing the smoke out of the barrel and putting the gun back in the holster.

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.
