Green or reddish-gold (depending on angle of light) portrait (bust-shot) of 1980 U.S. Olympic ice hockey team, gold medalist member Pat LaFontaine, in t-shirt, holding the blade of his hockey stick in his left hand, which appears to break the image plane; he stares wide-eyed out at viewer; creator's initials and year are etched into bottom right corner of glass; 2 glass plates are adhered together by black tape around the edges of the plates.

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.
