Greenish-reddish image of a 60-minute egg timer (the face of which is reversed as if a mirror image), a pair of open scissors and a small gyroscope, the latter of which appears to break the image plane.

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.
