When viewer stands to left of hologram, a woman is shown in slight profile, wearing a robe, with one foot rested on a chair that sits it front of her; as viewer moves to right, she turns her body and removes her robe, revealing her naked body.


This same hologram was sold through Edmund Scientific, but under the title "Artistic Nude." Hologram was exhibited in Germany, entitled "Bruestefenster" - a pun on Brewster-fenster - which is what the Germans call the Brewster windows on a laser. 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.
