Two curved pieces of plastic adhered together that can stand on its own; sandwiched between is a yellow piece of cardstock that reads `View Card' at the top and `LOOK! at the windows toward the target' at the bottom (the `O's in LOOK are made to look like eyeballs); 3 small rectangular windows in a horizontal row are cut out in the middle and contain 3 pieces of film; the middle piece is blank; the left piece contains a rainbow-colored hologram showing a diver holding a spear swimming on the left, away from a treasure chest in the middle and a shark on the right; the right piece contains a rainbow-colored hologram showing a female fortune-teller with a hood and large earrings, viewing a poker hand within a crystal ball.

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.
