Rainbow-colored portrait of New York mayor Abe (Abraham) Beame, shown seated with his 3 grandchildren; a young boy and girl are sitting on his lap, and a slightly older boy is standing on his left; when viewer stands to left of hologram, the group is shown in profile, so that their right sides are more visible; as viewer walks to right, the scene rotates so that they look directly at viewer; when viewer reaches far right side, they are shown in profile so that their left sides are more visible; as viewer moves to right, the seated boy raised his hand to his head, while the girl opens and closes her mouth.
