Hello Folks,

Does anybody know who is the authorized builder (and inventor by the way) of this illusion?? (water tank scape/metamorphosis )

Looks like a version of Mark Wilson's Aquarius Illusion. It was on the Magic Circus shows. I think it was built by John Gaughan.

It is Anthony Reed's illusion built from a Mark Kalin prop. Gary Ouellet dubbed it "The Drowning Pool" and it was featured on one of the installments of World's Most Dangerous Magic. Not sure who has the rights but I believe Bill Smith built at least some of the ones out there.

Alan Wakeling created the Aquarius (sub trunk in a water tank) for Mark Wilson.

In later years Mark Kalin came up with a new design & faster way of doing the switch and Bill Smith build this illusion from him.
He sold his prop to Anthony Reed.

In recent years Bill Smith build them for a few other people including Hans Klok.
Since I was not sure who owns the rights? (Mark Wilson, Kalin and/or Anthony Reed)I got permission from all 3 people involved for Hans Klok to use this in his show!
(just to be sure that there was no misunderstanding!)
I suggest you contact Bill Smith since he's the builder of this illusion.

I created my own version and this version was used by Dani Lary in his show and on Tv - you can see it here :

I hope you like it ;-)

I was just duping off some old vhs tapes. Anthony Reed performed this on World's Most Dangerous Magic 2 about 2001.
