Three sheets of film adhered together with clear tape to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120° hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure [see Notes below]; as structure rotates, viewer sees a standing nude woman with short blonde hair and high-heel shoes; as she bends over and stands erect, she also rotates 360°, so that she eventually returns to the position at which she begins (bent over, facing to right); 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.
