When viewer stands to left of hologram, a statue of a nude man wearning a long scarf is shown crucified on a cross; the man is shown in slight profile so that one sees the man's left side; as the viewer moves toward the right, the man and cross rotate so that by the time the viewer reaches the center, the man is staring at the viewer; by the end, the right side of the man is shown in slight profile; as the viewer moves toward the center, the man also gains an erection; by the end, the erection has subsided.

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.
