One of a series of 9 holograms (see object numbers MOH-1986.27.01-.09), each showing a different fetish doll in a different pose; according to Museum of Holography notes, all 9 were intended to be displayed as part of a hanging mobile; this hologram (MOH-1986.27.03) is a green image of a doll dancing; covered in glittery material; good 3-D effect as the kicking leg is close to the image plane, while the rest of the doll recedes.
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.
