Dragon’s Altar by Magic Wagon

(c. 2011)

Wow those Magic Wagon guys are back again and this time with a beautiful close-up illusion. As with all of their magic it is made perfectly. In effect you cleanly build a wooden triangle right in front of their eyes and from the middle pull a (very) heavy mini dragon statue.

This item is actually much better than Magic Wagon know themselves – they over thought it I believe when they came up with the gimmick and routine – and in fact you can achieve a much cleaner illusion by dropping a couple of steps they say in the instructions. Nothing hard but with a little thought you can make it easier and more effective.

There are very few guys out there today creating such amazing close-up magic that is both collectable and magical. Magic Wagon build in small runs, so get one now before they are gone.

Effect: This effect was inspired by Okito’s Triangular Mystery which is quite literally a masterpiece of magic apparatus and one of the most beautiful effects in magic.

The performer displays a small stand on which rest three thin flat wooden panels. The panels are removed, one at a time, and set on a low triangular base, elevated on three brass feet. The performer then “summons” the spirit of three ancient dragons and immediately a solid brass pillar with three different dragons is removed from the center of the triangle!

The mechanical part of this prop is exquisitely made and designed. There are no swinging or moving loads of any kind.

Each set is delicately hand-crafted from teak and each panel is adorned with beautiful brass plaque with an engraved dragon motif; even the craftsmanship and antique finish of the dragons perched on a pillar are truly remarkable.

Each panel is 8.5cms wide, 11cms high and only 4mm thick.

Approx. Price: $325.00 (2011) ***

    Dragon’s Never Looked Better

    I really want to meet the team at Magic Wagon, and find out what makes them tick. Effect-after-effect, they keep on exceeding expectations.

    I know this little micro-magic gem is based on classic principles, but I’ve never seen the illusion presented with such elegance. The workings are precise, and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Just what you would expect from "the Wagon."

    I do agree with Andy Martin’s assessment. I’ve managed to trim several steps from the suggested routine, and still attain the intended effect. But, that’s not a criticism. This piece is as close to perfect as micro-magic can be.
