Wandering Mummy II – Danis by Francois Danis

(c. 2007) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

In 2005, the talented young Frenchman François Danis created the first of his three versions: Wandering Mummy (2005), Wandering Mummy II (2007) and most recently his adorable Mini Wandering Mummy (2017).  François also created an effect based on Dr. Weyeneth’s “Vanishing Mummy” called The Cat of Raskhenotep (2009).

Effect: Two sarcophagi are shown. One has a mummy inside, the other does not. The story revolves around the way the Egyptians used to guard against ‘grave robbers’ which were prevalent at that time. The mummy is placed into one sarcophagus and the lid closed; When the grave robbers broke into the sarcophagus for the Pharaoh’s treasure which was always buried with him, they found nothing … and left empty-handed. The mummy was of course safe and sound in the other sarcophagus!

    Finally François Finds His Groove!

    I have slowly but surely been more and more impressed with the young craftsman from France: François Danis. Some of his early works were just good, but this newest version of his Wandering Mummies is fantastic and easily his best work to date. I have had many Mummy sets, but at this point this is my favorite.

    This is the first version of his Mummies that uses Mahogany and Samba for the carrying case and walnut for the caskets and the difference shows. The finish on this set matches Mel Babcock at his finest, and is even close to the ultra fine tolerances of Alan Warner. One of the really wonderful things about his work is the unique artwork that is used throughout his creations. He also offers you a number of choices of designs for the finished work, making every piece truly custom.

    These Mummies also come with a very well written routine by Ian Buckland. Most Mummy routines are pretty bare bones, but this one blends all the moves together and makes the whole effect become much more of a miracle with an interesting storyline too.

    All in all a truly wonderful set that should be in all collections!

    There is a new standard that I am starting called The GG Standard for those highly prized items that are suitable for only the finest collections. The standard is named after the collector whom I know only accepts the very best into his collection.

    This, my friends, certainly lives up to The GG Standard! It is truly beautiful and unique. Very well done François, and congratulations on making a tired, old Mummy fan get excited about your new Mummy! I look forward to seeing how much further you can grow.

    Most Highly Recommended!

    Fantastic Piece

    I’ve had this for several months now and it’s a great piece. Workmanship is fantastic, and Francois will customize this for you in many ways. With a little practice and thought, this trick is very, very deceptive. A wonderful iteration of this effect.

    Beautiful Craftsmanship

    I have owned several sets of mummies and this latest set by Francois Danis is exquisite. Everything from the beautiful handmade box to house the mummies to the beautifully hand painted mummies. The props are particularly eye catching, and of course, the routine is what you make of it. All in all, this is a wonderful item and one of my favorite collectible pieces. For beautifully made handmade micro magic, Francios is superb. If you don’t have a set of mummies in your collection, get this set. If you have mummies in your collection and don’t have this set, then GET THIS SET.
