illusion was invented by Luis de Matos of Portugal and
we're pleased to have been chosen to offer it to the magician
fraternity. The magician steps behind a large mirror which is
on legs, allowing all to see under the mirror. When the magician
walks behind it, he is completely hidden, except for his legs,
which remain visible under the mirror. There are two holes in
the mirror and the magician places his hands through them. He
is next handed a rolled-up cloth which he allows to unroll. The
cloth is then held up and immediately dropped. The magician has
penetrated the mirror and is now standing in front of it.
has used this illusion on his television show in Portugal and
we are pleased to offer a video of his presentation. The video also provides a look at the construction features of the illusion.
set up, the mirror is quite large, but packs to a convenient size
and is supplied with an ATA case which measures 52 1/4" x
39" x 15".
