Double-exposure hologram; when viewed from right or center, one sees a man's right hand, seen from wrist up, as though the man was standing in background holding his arm and hand out toward the viewer, with the fingers spread open; when viewed from the left, 4 small balls appear, one each between the fingers; well constructed, with the balls gradually appearing as one moves from the center to the left of the hologram; greenish-yellow image; creator's signature is written in lower right corner of glass.

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.
