Rainbow-colored hologram showing 2 men and a woman walking around a street corner toward viewer, with a woman with her back to viewer in background on street; image is shown within a television screen-sized box on the screen that moves to left as viewer moves to left; when viewer stands to right of hologram, the 3 walkers and car are shown on the far left of the television screen-sized box on the sidewalk; as viewer moves to left, they walk toward the viewer, around the corner and onto the street, while the car moves to the right and off the image; by the time the viewer reaches the far left part of hologram, only the man on the left is visible, appearing close to the image plane.

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.
