Here are some pictures of the first of three 4 Way Splits being built (not mine, mine is on the way).

First, the illusion starts like this and our lady gets in. http://stolzillusions.com/4-way-closed-800.jpg

Then, we drop 6 blades in and lift the inner boxes out into this formation. http://stolzillusions.com/4-way-open-800.jpg

The illusion is spun around, reversed and out she comes unharmed! Once I get mine, I will be doing up a smashing good video and taking a whole whack of pictures.

Thanks Magicque but I can't take credit for the build - only the concept and design. Dream Illusions is building these.

Great looking prop, what I don't like is the two iner boxes are smaller, and is there a way to produce a second girl form the prop??

Looks good! three questions can the holes in the side of the boxes be explained? do you put a round rod though to lift the boxes onto the platforms? also does this Illusion require two people to lift the boxes up? or can this whole Illusion be accomplished by the magician.

Thanks,
Abra

Awesome! It looks as good as I always thought it would. I love this illusion, and have always wanted to see one built and used in performance. Thank you so much for the pictures Chris!

Or you can add a drawing of the lady and make a whole for a foot and a way for a hand on the upper left box .

Thanks guys. The holes in the prop are a part of a custom add on for the first buyer - he will be penetrating the boxes with poles plus one or two other bits. As far as the standard performance goes, it only needs one magician and one assistant.

Great job Chris. An illusion that you can load your assistant do the deed and unload her all in front of the audience and from what I can see, can be done surrounded. Not too many of these out on the market that offer you that much flexibility. Best of luck with this one.

In my opinion this would be great if it's as small as the konundrum kube. The assistant position is same inside the box. And if it's not four way split then it could be three way. Anyway my point is I prefer more KK and subtrunk from murray, because those will fit inside back of car trunk. And also, my stages are not so big. Excellent work of art.

It would be great if it were as small as KK but it wouldn't be able to have those cool legs Smile The assistant position is a little different however, and very comfortable. Once I get mine, I'm pretty certain my wife will be Facebooking on her Blackberry while she's in the thing.

A wonderful and clean looking prop, congrats!

Chris, my specialty is creating imaginative, custom, presentations, routines, themes, or stories (spoken or silent) to enhance the performance, impact, and deceptiveness of an illusion.

I think with a prop as lovely as this, it's important to take it far beyond the "slick music, dance, turn it around, bow" cliché so many shows include.

If you'd like to brainstorm, like some direction, ideas or advice on your presentation, I'd be happy to work with you to get the most our of your new piece, at no charge. I hate to see a valuable prop underused or not creatively performed.

And I'd suggest keep it simple, don't add extras like poles or swords, I believe this would simply muddy the plot, confuse the premise, and perhaps over-prove the illusion.

If you want to research my style or reputation more there is a twenty page pdf for download of my book at Leaping Lizards Magic site.

My thoughts, Walt

Chris it looks terrific! As good (if not BETTER!) than your renderings, brilliant design. Congrats on the completion Smile

Thanks guys!

I've got a couple fun ideas Walt but I'm always happy to toss more around!

One idea includes talking about how I spend much time "cutting" a deck of cards and yet it never seems to scream or feel pain - but SHE might! (this may or may not end up involving me treating the blades to look like cards).

Thanks again for the kind words and I'm happy to chat about ideas here in open forum - go nuts!
