From Magic wagon:
A pharaoh is displayed and placed onto a beautiful wooden “altar”. It is then covered with a lid, which has a slit running across the middle. Now, a brass blade is shown and pushed right through the slit cutting the
pharaoh in half! The lid is then removed and both pieces are displayed and returned to the “altar”. The performer then says some magic words and, places both hands over the “altar” and the pharaoh is magically
restored! It’s an amazing effect that involves a nice mechanical method! The altar (including the lid) measures approximately 14cms wide by 5cms tall and 8cms deep and completely hand-crafted from genuine teak.
Each pharaoh is also beautifully made of Plexiglas with the intricate reverse painting technique. Due to the method used, this effect is best performed a few feet away from the audience.
