The performer removes the lid from a plain wooden sarcophagus to reveal an Egyptian Mummy reclining in an open coffin. The coffin containing the Mummy is removed and the performer then demonstrates the Mummy’s mysterious power TO FLOAT UNSUPPORTED IN THE COFFIN. The coffin with the floating Mummy is returned to the plain sarcophagus and the lid is replaced. A second sarcophagus is then shown empty, this sarcophagus differing from the first in that it has a decorated lid.
The performer states that the Mummy has the power not only to float unaided but also dematerialise and materialize, and goes on to prove this by reopening the plain sarcophagus to reveal that THE COFFIN IS NOW EMPTY. On removing the lid of the decorated sarcophagus, THE MUMMY IS NOW SEEN TO BE INSIDE THIS SARCOPHAGUS.
Each beautifully proportioned sarcophagus is made in SOLID TEAK and measures 12 x 5 x 5.4 cms high, an oiled finish preserving the natural wood. The lid of the decorated sarcophagus features A GENUINE HAND-POLISHED GEMSTONE. Please note that each piece of apparatus will feature a different gemstone to the one shown in the photograph below.
The apparatus is a delight to handle, and with Alan Warner’s improved method of working, simplicity itself to perform and a magnificent example of true craftsmanship.
