Rainbow-colored portrait of a Central Asian woman with large, puffy hair, wearing a robe with large hood that is transparent from the neck down, and exotic jewelry about her neck and chest; her left arm is visible under the robe and bent so that her left hand touches her left shoulded; when viewer stands to left of hologram, she is facing toward and gazing at the viewer; as the viewer moves to right, her body turns, eventually showing her left side, though she keeps her head turned and eyes focused on the viewer.
