Abstract work depicting four rainbow-colored nautilus shells; the shells are stacked atop one another; the top and 2nd from bottom point in one direction, while the other 2 point in the opposite direction. The perspective on the shells dramatically changes as one moves one's head vertically; the colors change dramatically as one moves one's head horizontally. Hologram intended as one section in a repeating pattern of identical holograms arranged in horizontal row.

Title in French translates "Under the Sea." 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.
