Three sheets of holographic film making up a 360-degree Multiplex hologram (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. As structure rotates, viewer sees a rainbow-colored image of an Asian woman standing and holding a sparkler and wearing a kimono-like gown; at first, she is shown in profile, so that her left side is visible; as structure rotates, her position changes so that she seems to spin around so that her back is shown; at end of rotation, she is in profile so that her right side is visible.

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.
