The performer shows a beautiful wooden stand displaying four brass plaques. Each plaque depicts a different Egyptian symbol. While he turns away, four spectators each remove one plaque from the stand, remember its symbol and hide anywhere it cannot be seen. When this is done, the performer turns around and shows the stand on all sides to prove that it is absolutely opaque and solid. The performer then reveals to each spectator which Egyptian symbol they have selected and hidden from view!
While the performer’s back is turned, one spectator is invited to place each of the brass plaques into different pockets. The performer then turns around and correctly names the symbol that the spectator has hidden in each pocket!
• The effect is completely self-contained with no electronics or outside gimmicks used in any way!
• The effect can be performed in full view and the stand never leaves the sight of the spectator, not even for an instant!
• There is absolutely no force or elimination of any kind!
Hundreds of hours have gone into the development of this ingenious mechanical stand. The engineering behind this is absolutely brilliant and a lot of workmanship has gone into making one of these due to the method involved.
The stand measures approximately 15cms wide, 18cms high and 5.5cms deep and has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish. The brass plaques measure approximately 7.5cms long and 3.5cms wide and are beautifully engraved with Egyptian symbols.
Special thanks to Mr. Tony Curtis for coming up with the name for this effect.
