When viewers stand to left of hologram, 2 nude women are shown facing each other in kneeling/squating positions, with the woman on the left kissing the other's neck; the woman on the left is seen from behind; the woman on the right is partially obscured; as viewer moves to right, the image rotates, so that by the time the viewer reaches the far right, the fronts of both women are clearly visible; as the viewer moves to the right, the woman on the left drops down to kiss the other woman's breast.

This film staged by Pam Brazier and Helen Madigan, and photographed by Lloyd Cross. 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.
