Rainbow-colored image of a man and woman in performing a ballet move; when viewer stands to left of hologram, the man is standing behind the woman, holding onto her outstreched arms; she is balanced tip-toe on her left foot, her right leg bent and stretched forward; both are shown in slight profile so that their right sides are more visible; when viewer moves to right, the scene appears to rotate so that the couple turn clockwise until they are in slight profile so that their left sides are more visible by the time the viewer reaches the far right side of the hologram.

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.
