Statue (marble ?) of a woman on a pedestal with one leg crossed over the other, wearing an ornamental headdress and holding a flute in front of her face as if poised to play; flowers and snake-like ornamentations weave throughout the statue; possibly Balinese; image only viewable from straight on or from the right; image shifts and becomes out of focus when viewed from left; reddish-green image; frame formed with wood-grained tape around the borders, which holds the glass plates together.

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.
