Triple-exposure hologram showing 3 different views of a skull and objects; image shown depends on one's vertical position to the plate; bottom image is a green human skull, mouth open, facing the viewer with small transluscent balls sitting in the eye sockets; the color of the balls/eyes is blue when viewed at just the right angle; the middle image shows the same skull but with the skull cap slightly open; sitting within the skull is a yellow grouping of buildings in a square pattern (perhaps Mexican or Native American style); coming out of the skull and floating around the image are a multitude of small objects: tops, stars, half moon, owl in flight, man on bicycle, coins (marked `Wooden Nickel' and showing a buffalo), skeletons, dice, balls, and cubes; the objects are either blue, green, or yellow/gold (not rainbow-colored); the top image shows the skull cap opened further, with the same objects but at different positions within and around the skull; good clarity and interesting use of multiple exposures set vertically within the plate, and excellent use of multiple colors within a 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.
