An elegant cabinet along with a mummy are displayed. The mummy is shown to be perfectly solid and is openly placed into the cabinet. The cabinet is then closed while the head and feet of the mummy remain in full view. Next, four brass rods are shown and pushed right through the cabinet from top to bottom, securing the mummy on all sides. Now, a brass blade is shown and immediately see-sawed back and forth through a slit running across the middle of the cabinet, apparently cutting the mummy in half! All is then reversed and the mummy is shown to be unharmed and still perfectly solid!
It’s a stunning visual magic effect and has been inspired by one of the world’s greatest stage illusions!
The entire outfit is extremely detailed and because of the method involved and the long artistic manufacturing process, it has taken over 9 months to complete this release. It is, without question, one of the finest and most exquisitely detailed effects we have ever produced. The photos really do not do justice to this very elaborate piece of magic apparatus!
The cabinet measures approximately 5.5 cm wide by 9.2 cm tall and 16 cm deep.
Please note: the slightly larger Anubis’s blade as shown in the third picture is also included.
Special thanks to Mr. Tony Curtis for coming up with the name for this effect.
