Six identical glass plate hologram set in a horizontal line within gray matting and a black frame; each hologram shows a dark, abstract, swirling pattern; when hit by light, a portion of each hologram produces a rainbow-colored diffraction grating pattern; as viewer moves to left or right, colored pattern seems to jump from hologram to hologram.

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.
