Brahmin (Brahman) Rice Bowls by RNT II(c. 1977,2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Rice Bowls is Indian in origin. The earliest version of this effect was created by P&L as The Great Brahman Rice Bowls. They are closer to Lota Bowls than Rice Bowls with nothing added or taken away.
These were made by the original Rings ‘N Things here, this set by RNT II over 30 years later. Notice the spelling: Brahman is with an “i” as in Brahmin – not sure why but that is the way they are on their website even today.
Effect: Two finely finished brass bowls measuring about 5 inches in diameter are exhibited to the audience, shown to be empty, and are clashed together to prove that this really is the case. The performer takes up one of the empty bowls and fills it with rice, which he levels off with his wand. The other bowl is inverted and placed over the one containing rice. It is significant to note that this bowl is genuinely empty when inverted over the other.
The other bowl is again shown and proven sways them back and forth for an instant before setting them down on a tray. Upon separating the bowls the spectators are astonished to observe that the rice has doubled in quantity, as the bowl is seen to be more than overflowing. The other bowl is again shown and proven to be empty. Once more it is inverted over the bowl of rice and the performer again sways them back and forth. When taken apart this time the rice has entirely vanished and the bowls are overflowing with water which continues to increase in quantity as the water is poured from one bowl to the other.
The wonderful effect invariably created by this bewildering trick should not in any way be confused with that of the old familiar Rice and Water Trick, as positively no celluloid disc is used.
