Rust-colored, coin-shaped hologram onto "which a convex mirror is recorded...the existence of the hologram becomes evident when you observe the image of a filament of an incandescent lamp in the light reflected by the hologram. The image of the filament formed by the hologram is enlarged and colored." (from letter from Denisyuk to the Museum of Holography, 1991)

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.
