Thomas surprised me this morning when two more magnificent effects from his beautiful Aztec Series arrived at my doorstep just in time for Christmas! I must say these are the best of the series so far. Huitzilopochtli is the Aztec God of War and this effect involves a very clean and clearly impossible penetration of the figure of Huitzilopochtli (conveniently stored in the base of the unit) through a disk held securely in the frame.
You show the beautiful and colorful disk in the frame and cover it with two bars that each have a channel through which the figure will eventually be passed. Using some cleverly designed clips the bars attach easily onto the frame and the set-up looks quite amazing. The spectator can try to push the figure through the channel with no luck. The magician can show the unit all around – there is nothing to hide, add or take away, and then with a magic wave of the hand the magician or the spectator is able to slowly but surely push Huitzilopochtli all the way through the disk. It really looks quite magical to behold. If you desire you can show the disk again at the end.
Please Note: In the photo you will see a hairline crack along the disk this is because of the high resolution close-up photos I take with my camera, for only a few feet this will not be noticed. The penetration really looks quite impossible.
A wonderful addition to the Aztec Series, that I know collector’s will quickly jump to!
