Horus-Scope by Alan Warner(c. 1994) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
A small wooden cover known as the HORUS-SCOPE – on the top of which is the ‘All-seeing Eye of Horus’ – is placed in front of a spectator who has been invited to assist the performer. Protruding from either end of the Horus-Scope is a folded slip of paper – a prediction made by Horus, one of the more important and powerful Gods of Ancient Egypt.
Next, a small box is introduced which contains six wooden tablets, carved into each of which is its own individual hieroglyphic symbol which has been specially highlighted by a distinctive background colour that varies from one tablet to the next. These tablets are laid out in a line and one is selected by the spectator assisting the performer. The spectator is then asked to remove the slip of paper from the Horus-Scope and to read what is written on it. THE PREDICTION TAKEN FROM THE HORUS-SCOPE CORRECTLY IDENTIFIES THE TABLET SELECTED BY THE SPECTATOR!
With this effect, we have taken the basic idea of an old but clever idea and incorporated it into a delightfully designed piece of apparatus with an Egyptian theme to create spectator interest.
HORUS-SCOPE IS, AS EVER, QUALITY APPARATUS DESIGNED SPECIALLY BY Alan Warner FOR INCLUSION IN HIS HIGHLY ACCLAIMED EGYPTIAN COLLECTION.
BEAUTIFUL HANDCRAFTED APPARATUS:
- All the pieces used in this effect are made in teak.
- The box, which measures 7 x 5 x 5 cms (approx.), has decorative Egyptian panels with a gold background (varnished for protection) on each of its four sides.
- The tablets (5 x 3 cms approx.) all have a hieroglyphic symbol carved into the front of them, and the backs of the tablets are decorated with a diamond-shaped, specially dyed, coloured boxwood inlay – an entirely new innovation in the design of our apparatus.
- The cover for the prediction is 7.5 x 3 cms (approx.), and set in relief on the top of it is the symbolic, predicting ‘All-seeing Eye of Horus’.
The apparatus comes complete with two Alan Warner routines.
