Rainbow-colored image of a seated fisherman in glasses, fishing cap and jacket, pipe in mouth, his fishing pole standing up while resting between his arm and side, tree in background, measuring a small caught fish with a ruler; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is looking down at the ruler and fish; as viewer moves to right, he looks up at viewer and breaks into a smile, before eventually looking back down at the fish; as viewer moves to right, the scene also shifts and rotates so that by the time the viewer reaches the right side, the man is shown in profile, his right side visible.


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.
