Large sheet of plastic to which is adhered a smaller-sized hologram, which shows a greenish-red image of a bearded man's face, eyes closed, which is positioned behind a vague object that may be a robotic machine part; the part has a large, open round section through which the man's face is visible; the right side and forehead of the man's face, which is not positioned behind the machine part, appears to be machine-like, with a squared jawline and chin and robotic eye.

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.
