Greenish-gold image of a bronze (?) relief image of a man from waist up, head turned in profile, wearing a tunic and cap, holding a large book in both hands; his face is turned towards an unidentified small Janus-like (2-faced) sculpture in the upper right corner; possibly an icon; hologram is held within a black plastic case for protection and portability; top of case flips open to expose hologram; Cyrillic letters, possibly spelling out `Hologramma,' appear at top of case.

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.
