The visualization of curved sections of spacetime can be of considerable conceptual value. Here we discuss the visualization of initial data for the problem of the head-on collision of two black holes. The problem of constructing the embedding diagram is presented explicitly for the best studied initial data, the Misner geometry. We present a partial solution of the embedding diagrams and discuss issues related to completing the solution.
