EXTREMELY COOL 3D HOLOGRAM image of Shakespeare. This 6" square hologram (set into an 8" X 10" black standard matte size) was created by one of the world's leading holographers in the late 1980's. The image is of the Bard Himself (well, actually that would be a bit gory, so a fine impersonator was hired for the shot!). The method for creating this was a commercialized twist on one of the early uses of rainbow holography, it is a Stereogram (sometimes called a Multiplexer after the first commercial film studio creating them). This image has the addition cool factor of being one of the first color tuned embossed stereograms, so that under a good lightsource and at the correct viewing angle, the colors are correct (skin tone, red tunic, etc.). As the image (or viewer) moves side to side, the Bard seems to be speaking as he places his finger to his cheek... To Be or Not To Be... Imortalized in a hologram, is no longer the question!

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF HOW THIS HOLOGRAM WAS CREATED: The actor was filmed while rotating on a turntable to produce 200 frames of color film. These frames were then put through a complex proprietary laser mastering process rendering them into "vertical slit rainbow type holograms" (thank you to the late great Steve Benton for inventing white-light viewable rainbow holography in the first place!), one slit hologram per frame. The frames were then lined up and a second hologram was created from the original (technically known as the H2), this time with the frames pushed out into the viewer space such that the new final rainbow transmission hologram has the image appearing to float at the surface and the viewer cannot see the slits as they float way out in viewer space. Next this H2 master hologram was silvered to make it conductive and dipped into an electroforming bath to "grow" a thick nickel master shim (generally destroying the H2 mater upon removal), and since the interference pattern for rainbow holograms is a surface relief  grating (that in fact is the hologram), the surface of the new nickle shim is a bright shiny metal version of the white light viewable rainbow stereogram, in effect turning it from a transmission style playback to a reflection due to the mirror surface. Finally, a later version of the nickel shim was wrapped around a cylindar and placed into a micro-embossing press where heat and pressure are used to transfer the groove structure (again, this is the hologram) from the nickel shim into metalized polyester film, thus creating a rainbow transmission embossed color-tuned stereographic hologram that can be seen as under the reflected light of any reasonably coherent point source - aka a halogen spotlight, direct sunlight, LED, candle etc.

In our opinion, this is the one of the best examples of an embossed rainbow film footage stereogram ever produced.

If you have any interest in holograms or Shakespeare, this is a must-have for a great price!

Thanks for your interest.


* Personal Bio on the seller: I have been producing commercial holography for 30 years. One could say that I eat, drink and sleep holography and am known around the world as one of the foremost authorities regarding commercial applications for display type holograms. I also own one of the largest collections of fine and commercial art holograms, as well as a multitude of mass-production holograms of various types.

I was a licensed agent for Polaroid's holographic division from the mid 1980s to the time they closed in about 1997, at which time I purchased the bulk of their stock - some of which is for sale in my auctions (and more to come). To this day, my main business is in holography related applications, including custom commercial photopolymer holograms.


The information stated in the descriptions on my e-bay listings is always accurate to the best of my expert knowledge (yet somewhat “tossed together” so please let me now if you notice any inaccuracies).


The photopolymer holograms I offer in my auctions are some of the finest examples of true 3D commercial (mass-produced) holograms in the world, and rare in that once the existing supply is exhausted, most will never be made again (as the masters were destroyed long ago). Also, I own most (all in some cases).of the world's stock of the holograms I offer.


E-bay listing of this material is just a fun adjunct for me, as I have a large inventory of holograms that are not sold in my current business model, so offering them for resale on the internet seems a good way to allow people interested in holograms to attain examples of high quality holograms at affordable prices.


Please contact me directly with any questions; or, let me know if you are seeking a particular hologram as I may have (or know where to get) it.  Also please inquire if you are interested in wholesale or commercial applications of holography. I will to respond to all requests in a timely manner. Thank you for considering my holograms and hologram products, and I hope you enjoy your purchases!
