Has anyone seen The Great Kovari preform this illusion. I recently reconstructed this illusion and was wanting to see how it was originally preformed. If anyone could point me into the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
Im also looking for Illusions/effects that aren't normally seen in the US. Looking forward to seeing what you guys have to say...

Thanks,

Andrew

Are you talking about the Magician's Revenge illusion?

Andrew,

My bad it was Harbin who did the Azte Lady. Here is a link for more information.

Sorry about that.

Aztec Lady is Harbin's, only one in existance (the original in a collection), no plans for it available. Check out Youtube there is a full clip of the performance.

Your link would not open for me, so are you talking about the short Kovari Blade Box?? 6 blades and 1 center one, then a box pushed through??? This is also up on Youtube in performance. I have one, purchased from Kovari.

"I recently reconstructed this illusion and was wanting to see how it was originally performed."

Are you saying you built a KNOCK-OFF of an existing dealer's item?

No redone the existing illusion....It was old and in need of being refinished.

Yes, I saw Kovari perform it several times and a couple of other people. It is a very good illusion if presented properly. It will accomidate are regular or semi large or tall assistant. I remember Fred and Kelly Becker did it.

I think part of the routine may be on an old Abbott's Get Together highlight tape. I will try to look tomorrow to give you the year.

I'm not sure how you expand off that trick, its pretty set. Except that maybe you could change your patter.
Message: Posted by: Andrew H. (Jan 15, 2008 07:21AM)
So far the trick has been performed slow, some with music and some without. I put together a little act for a show a freind and I did back in halloween. It was a 20s swing act with billard balls>>>then the kavari done kinda fast. I would like some of you guys to let me know what you think? If I can get it on you tube....
