Interior of a wallpapered room, with a wishbone hanging on a nail on the back wall, the wishbone's shadow visible on the wall; sitting on the floor is a large rock; portion of wall behind the rock is removed, allowing one to see behind the wall; irregular piece of mirror is positioned to the right of the rock so one can see the hidden right side of the rock in the reflection; excellent example of depth found in holography; 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.
