Fourteen pieces of film in a collage, sandwiched between 2 pieces of glass; 10 of the pieces contain images of half ovals, that when combined with other pieces, form rainbow-colored, egg-shaped objects; one piece of glass is slightly smaller than the other and the 2 are adhered in such a way that there is 1/2" to 1" border around the smaller piece; the adhesive material gives the border area an icy, rippled effect.

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.
