The Sign of The Snake is a unique Mini-Magic effect invented and crafted beautifully by Alan Warner. A story of the Spirit of Cerastes the Egyptian Snake God lives on in the beautifully carved and colored Cartouche. A blank tablet is first placed into the cartouche and then the spectator is shown the five small plaques that each have a carving of the sign of the snake god carved into it. Each carving on the plaques is a snake of a different color. The spectator picks one colored plaque of his choice and then the tablet that was in the cartouche is removed and the first magical effect takes place as the once blank tablet now is covered with interesting hieroglyphics. The story teller with tongue in cheek volunteers to read the message sent by the spirit of the snake god. A comical moment takes place and then the storyteller reads the true message which leads the action to displaying the sign of the snake that is actually a prediction of the same color as the snake carved into the plaque freely chosen by the spectator. A second magical moment. Another wonderful Alan Warner trick to add to my collection.
