Rainbow-colored portrait of New York City mayor Ed Koch from waist up, wearing a shirt and tie, smiling, holding his left hand and thumb up in a `thumbs up' pose; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is in slight profile so that his right side is more visible; as viewer moves to right, his position changes so that by the time the viewer reaches the right side, he is shown in profile so that his left side is more visible; title, creator's signature and year are written along bottom of hologram.

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.
