When viewer stands to right of hologram, a nude woman is shown from behind in a kneeling/squatting position; as viewer moves to left, she turns, staring at viewer with her head craned slightly backward, her right hand on a breast, her right hand in her crotch; as viewer continues to move to left, she straightens her head and moves her right hand to her mouth, suggestively placing her fingers in her mouth; by end, viewer is viewing her from behind; minor flaw exists toward the left-center portion--as viewer moves to left, motion becomes jerky and confused, as though a double-exposure has occurred; rainbow-colored image.


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.
