When viewer stands to right of hologram, a rainbow-colored self-portrait (bust shot) image of the creator, with mustache and long hair, is shown, in slight profile, so that viewer sees the man's right side; as viewer moves to left, man slowly turns, so that viewer sees his face straight on; by end, viewer sees his left side in slight profile; image appears in a 5-inch vertical band that appears in the center portion of the holographic film.
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.
