Richard Gerlitz The Three Sisters 2014
When the Huns began invading China, the conjurer Sea-Ling devised a way to get his 3 sisters to safety. He turned each sister into a small gold figurine and then placed the figurines into a small jewel chest. Using his magic, he vanished everything into a silk.
Sea-Ling was then able to safely travel the countryside with the innocent looking silk. Upon arriving at a safe destination, he called upon his faithful Whispering Dragon Ting, to magically restore the chest from the silk. The 3 sisters then joined Sea-ling in their new homeland.
An ornately decorated Chinese box is placed on a table and the lid opened. A silk, 3 gold figurines, a sleeve, and a small jewel chest are removed. The 3 gold figurines are placed into the jewel chest and the Chinese box set aside. The jewel chest is then placed into the sleeve and covered with the silk. Immediately the silk is pushed through the sleeve and the jewel chest has vanished! The empty sleeve shown and then set aside. The Chinese box is brought forth, the lid opened, and the silk placed inside. The front of the box is then opened to clearly show the silk. A magical pass is made and the silk is pulled from the box. There inside the box, sits the restored jewel chest! The chest is removed, the lid opened, and the 3 sisters are set free.
