Rainbow-colored hologram featuring a standing man speaking and gesticulating to a seated woman on his right, with a large plant appearing to his left; these figures appear in background; a variety of people and faces appear to project into foreground and middleground as viewer moves to right; the man in background moves his hands and arms as he speaks; among the faces and people in foreground and middleground is a bearded man with glasses who appears twice; the first time he appears he holds his hands in front of his face; the second time, he is walking across the image with a cigar, bent over in a Groucho Marx pose; the foreground, middleground and background figures all overlap at times in a collage-like manner.

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.
