Rainbow-colored image of a ballerina in ballet skirt and shoes performing a pirouette; when viewer stands to right of hologram, she is facing the viewer, standing tip-toe on her right foot, her left foot bent away from her body toward the left; as viewer moves to right, she spins clockwise 360°; when viewer moves slowly, the image appears jumpy, as though there are multiple-exposures in some parts; but when one moves quickly, the motion appears fluid.


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.
