Rainbow-colored image of a pair of hands performing a trick with a coin; when viewer stands to left of hologram a pair of hands is shown against a dark background, with the left hand palm down and the right hand palm up with a large coin in it; as viewer moves to the right, the right hand moves and the coin seems to disappear; the right hand turns over so it is palm down and then moves over to the left hand; the coin then appears on top of the left hand.

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.
