Large format, rainbow-colored image of a standing vulture; its body faces the viewer though its head is craned towards the viewer's left so that it is in profile, with one eye focused on viewer; 2 glass panels that sandwich the holographic film are adhered together with black tape around the edges; the upper right and left corners of the glass appear to be cracked and are held in place with thick tape, though this does not affect the image quaility; creator's signature and date appear on bottom right corner of film.

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.
