Clear piece of film sandwiched between 2 unframed, clear pieces of glass; the only holographic elements on the film are several translucent lines in the lower right and upper left corners of the film; these lines represent the outline of the very lower part of the left wing of a phoenix (mythical bird) and part of the sunbeams that are shown coming out from behind the bird; the lines are translucent and produce rainbow-colored diffraction gratings when illuminated with light; one of 12 pieces of film/glass plates that show the entire body of a phoenix (see Notes below).

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.
