Greenish-gold portrait of a young male toddler from stomach up, wearing a caveman-type outfit over his chest, staring at viewer with wide eyes and open mouth, his left hand raised up in front of his face; he holds a teddy bear / stuffed animal and blanket in his left arm; part of the blanket appears to project out of the image plane; small chunk of glass from the bottom left corner of the front sheet of glass is missing; the image appears in the center of the glass, and is framed by a darker area of emulsion on the outside area of glass, though it does not affect the image quality; on 2 thick sheets of glass.

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.
