The image is one made of the solarized paper negative. It is a solarized negative. When copied and inverted in tones it becomes a solarized positive. The girl was lying on a black velvet background. The negative was not lying flat and thus the waves appeared. The Polaroid print, the one with proper tones like the original did not show solarization. Only the paper negative.
I must say that being early in the morning my explanation may leave something to be desired. Sorry for that.

Andy,The wave marking of the image lead me to ask question- Was the original Polaroid solarized? or was the print from the paper negative solarized? Wave marks are either caused by light "waves" or by development chemical waves?
