A * Mini-Magic * SPECIAL

From time to time I shall be offering a piece of Mini-Magic apparatus of exceptional quality in its design and craftsmanship. The first of these very special pieces of apparatus, EYE OF ISIS, is a small wooden chest which reputedly contains powers similar to those of the Ark of the Covenant. The wooden tablet contained within the chest, while appearing to be blank, is nevertheless believed to have written down on it the secret of the power of the greatest of all Egyptian Goddesses, Isis. According to legend, should a true believer gaze upon this chest, Isis, ‘Mistress of Magic and Speaker of Spells’, will reveal that secret and endow the beholder with her greatness.

Removing the lid of the chest, the performer displays a fixed inner casket which contains the BLANK WOODEN TABLET. After the lid has been replaced on the chest, a spectator is invited to gaze upon it. The lid is then removed to reveal that the EYE OF ISIS HAS BECOME IMPRINTED ON THE TABLET, an indication that Isis has acknowledged that the spectator is a true believer and that the Goddess is favourably disposed to disclose the secret of her power.

Once again the lid is replaced on the chest and the spectator asked to concentrate. Opening the chest, the performer now reveals that THE EYE OF ISIS HAS DISAPPEARED COMPLETELY and that the secret of the Goddess’s power and greatness has been disclosed, WRITTEN OUT IN EGYPTIAN HEIROGLYPHS THAT HAVE BEEN CARVED INTO THE TABLET!

As with its forerunners, THE PHARAOH’S CURSE and THE TALISMAN, the magic and routine of EYE OF ISIS are most unusual, something completely different, and equally intriguing and mystifying.

The beautifully designed apparatus – which is handcrafted in teak to the high quality of skilled workmanship which, over the years, magicians worldwide have come expect of Alan Warner – measures14.5 x 7 cms and stands 6.4 cms high. The chest and inner casket have been inlaid with an attractive narrow strip of wood banding; the lid decorated with polished gemstones which have been set into it to form a symbolical eye. The feet on the chest are of solid brass. Complete with The Alan Warner Routine.

    To see it is to believe!

    Well I waited over 8 months for this, but the wait was well worth it. This is one of the final pieces in the Alan Warner teak collection, at least for now. To see and touch Alan’s magic is really the only way to appreciate the time and effort he spends in every intricate detail of design and construction.

    This is certainly one of his finer pieces of craftmanship and the effect is also very clean and surprising. It blends in very nicely with his other Egyptian effects.

    I will miss receiving my monthly packages from you Alan, so please start thinking up some more of your wonderful magic!

    Can The Surprises Ever End?

    And I thought Alan could not surprise me after some great pieces in my collection, but he sure can and likely will in the future. This is simply an amazing piece of Egyptian themed mini-magic – my favorite style because of the beautiful designs and that inherent mystical quality of this subject. Pictures unfortunately never give these Warner pieces any justice.

    I have already exhausted all my praises for this wonderful craftsman and I realize my reviews are getting rather too repetitive. It’s just that there is no fault that can be found with any Warner piece. So why do I continue writing them – well, simply because they are sincere “thank you!” notes for each and every piece that comes to my collection.

    Eye-yi-yi-yi-yi, I like it!

    Just received my newest Alan Warner creation: Eye of Isis. Without a doubt, it is one of the most beautiful pieces in the Alan Warner Collection, and the clever design of the prop makes the magic baffling. What I have come to love about Alan’s magic (in addition to the obviously beautiful craftsmanship) is the clever presentations and subtle handlings of the props which Alan provides in his detailed and well-written instructions. Eye of Isis is no exception to this. My wife was completely bamboozled when I performed the effect for her. She said, "I kept watching for you to do [a move], but I never saw you do it!" Guess what? Didn’t need to, thanks to Alan’s cleverness. This piece has been around for quite a while. I’m sure glad I finally got it. It’s a beaut!
