Three sheets of film adhered together with clear tape to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120° hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. As structure rotates, viewer sees a nude man and woman painted head to toe in a snakeskin-like pattern; man is on the left and shown from behind, crouched behind the woman, who is on all fours with her left arm stretched out; man is equipped with a exaggerated phallus; as the structure rotates, the man thrusts his hips back and forth; the entire scene also rotates so that the couple turns around 360°; rainbow-colored image.
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.
