Who did this, A magician had his belly cut, and a woman came out. I want to say it was Copperfield that did this, but not sure.

Another was shooting an arrow(signed) through someone, and hit a target.

A man in a masked put a magician in the box, then he opened the box, which the magician is gone, and then he takes off the mask and it is the magician.

These are some that I saw, that completely got me.

Drkptrs1975, the last one you were talking about is called Backstage Illusion by a Corean Magician Lee (don't remember the last of the name). Really amazing.

Lee Eyon Gueol I think...?? He has a very nice baffling Vampire illusion too. He is a great and tallented magician!

I wish I could see the Moretti Crossbow illusion. I saw but very long time ago. Those people the luckiest who doesn't know the Sword Box illusion but even if you know still amazing.

And here is the Moretti Bullett Catch

Hahah, it brought up something that I think is funny. On some illusions when you know the workings and have even seen how it works, your mind is still in denial.

The first time I saw ZigZag it was by the orignator Robert Harbin and it totally fried me.

Having seen Moretti live a few times and also worked on the same bill with him, I can tell you EVERYTHING he does is ORIGINAL AND BAFFLING. His wife died a few years ago and last time I saw Hans he was working with his daughter.

His son also does the bow and arrow act and uses the name Hans Pantar.

There is a beautiful hard cover book on Morettie's life (in German).

He's a great guy too.

See, total denial.

I'm trying to find out where it's at...
that was the very first one.
It was sold in 1985 to a guy in Kentucky,
who bought it for his 6 month old daughter
to grow into.

I thought #2 was small when I took it
out of the storage, but that one was
tiny in comparison.

So part of my entire research will
include that as well as another one,
I just learned about last week.

I forgot to thank you for sharing that video with us. I can remember reading about your Dad making it and performing it with you years ago, and it was awesome to finally get to see it. The internet is an amazing place...
