Description

THE GILLYMAN A NOVEL, EGYPTIAN-THEMED DOUBLE PREDICTION The performer opens an ornate box which contains four sets of small wooden tablets, each of which is housed individually in slots, and another smaller, curious-looking decorated box or cover. He then removes the smaller box and places it on the table. Next he removes the four sets of tablets and places them face down on the table in front of a spectator who is then asked to select one of these sets. After the spectator has made his selection, the performer turns the remaining three sets face up to reveal that each of these sets is actually a miniature puzzle, made up of four equal quarters. Each individual puzzle features a different, Egyptian-themed picture. While the performer is piecing together the other three puzzles, he asks the spectator to turn his puzzle face up and then assemble the pieces correctly to make a complete picture. The performer then requests the spectator to remove any one of the four quarters that have made up his (the spectator’s) completed puzzle. After doing so, the spectator can be given an opportunity to change his selection for one of the other pieces in his puzzle. The performer now draws attention to the smaller box which proves to be a wooden cover inside of which is a tray. Picking up the cover, the performer removes the tray to reveal that it contains a puzzle, one piece of which is missing. AMAZINGLY, THE PUZZLE IN THE TRAY MATCHES THE PICTURE SELECTED BY THE SPECTATOR WITH THE SAME QUARTER PIECE MISSING FROM IT! ∆ ∆ ∆ The large box, which measures 6 x 3.75 x 1.75 inches (approx.), features a geometric, pyramid-style design on its lid and is lined with green velour. It is veneered in sapele and then hand-polished. The smaller box, or cover, and its tray are made in teak. The cover measures 2.5 x 1.5 inches (approx.). Complete with the Alan Warner routine involving an Egyptian Gillyman’s presentation of this effect.

    Delightful New Warner Magic!

    This is one clever and ingenious piece from Alan. The method is so diabolical and the craftsmanship is impeccable, as one expects from this master craftsman. Beautiful effect and all so nicely stored in an elegant case. This is one where examining all the (secret) components of the appartus makes you appreciate what value you are getting than from simply seeing the images from this review.

    Owning many of Alan’s magic, I thought he couldn’t surprise me (well, I have witnessed great magic from this man) but I felt like a child on Christmas Day when I took this out from the parcel. This will definitely be on the list of my favorite Warner pieces, if that is possible to have favorites.

    Thanks again, Alan, for another beauty and a most welcome addition to my collection.
