Description

Displayed on the performer’s table are a small oblong teak case and a manikin (a small wooden cut-out of a man which has four holes in it – one in the manikin’s head, one in his body, another in one of his legs, and one in a foot). A spectator is given three tapered wooden pegs and asked to place these pegs in any of the holes he can see in the manikin (which leaves, of course, one hole unpegged).

This done, the performer then states that the spectator will not have been aware of it, but right from the moment he picked up the pegs to place them in the manikin, the powerful influence of VOO DOO, the demon face on the front of the oblong case, who has been watching him all the while, has forced him against his will to place the pegs in certain holes. To prove that VOO DOO has the power to influence the spectator in this way, the performer picks up the teak case, which has been in full view of the spectator all the time, and tips out of it another wooden manikin with only ONE hole in it which matches exactly the hole which the spectator left unpegged in his cut-out figure.

VOO DOO is something delightfully different, completely baffling, and with its overtones of ‘occult’ magic, thoroughly entertaining. There is no force: the spectator has an entirely free choice of where he places the three pegs.

No ‘OUTS’: at the climax of the effect, THE PERFORMER ALWAYS TIPS A MANIKIN OUT OF THE VOO DOO CASE TO MATCH THE SPECTATOR’S MANIKIN.

Beautifully handcrafted to the high quality of workmanship which is a standard feature of AlanWarner’s Mini-Magic range of close-up apparatus, the special oblong case (10.8 x 6.4 cms approx.) is made in teak and has a natural, oil-polished finish with the demon VOO DOO’S ebony head cut in relief and mounted on the front of it. The pegs are wooden, as are the manikins which are approximately 7.6 cms tall.

    Oh Yes Alan, another Winner!

    So you want to walk in, wow them, and walk out? Why not do it with this baby?

    Clean and convincing as Alan likes to make it.
    Go on, just buy it, you won’t be unhappy!

    Fantastic piece!

    This is a great Alan Warner item. The working mechanism in the case is amazing and clever. It will allow you to freely slip out the correct voodoo figure to match any combination in the spectator’s figure after free choice on 3 peg insertions. Incredible!!

    You do VooDoo? I do VooDoo!

    Without a doubt, one of Alan’s most intricate and cleverly operating pieces of apparatus. This jewel allows a completely free choice by the spectator–absolutely any one of four choices can be made. Without any hedging, equivoque, magician’s choice, or any other form of Tom-foolery, the performer clearly shows he has perfectly predicted the choice. And not only that, the next performance may have a completely different outcome, as may the one after that, and the one after that, and so on, and so on. In short, the routine is very impressive. But even more impressive is the craftsmanship, both visible and invisible, in this piece. Who do VooDoo? Alan do VooDoo! Thanks, Alan!
