When one illuminates a computer-generated hologram by a plane wave, the obtained two-dimensional image is usually displayed on a planar plane. Other possibilities for reconstructing images on arbitrary curved surfaces are discussed herein. As an example, the reconstruction of an image on a virtual spherical surface is demonstrated.
