Based on an original idea from Mr. Jack Hughes’s Dove Through Glass, we are pleased to bring you The Pagoda Mystery.
A beautiful wooden frame containing a sheet of plexiglass is displayed on both sides. The performer then taps on the sheet of plexiglass to prove it is solid. He then places two small panels with star traps over the center of the glass and places the whole unit onto a small stand. Without any hesitation, the performer immediately pushes the wooden rod right through the star traps, apparently penetrating the solid sheet of plexiglass! After the penetration, the panels are removed to reveal that the sheet of plexiglass is completely unharmed and still perfectly solid! It is a truly baffling penetration effect.
Each set is completely hand-crafted from natural aged teak wood and measures approximately 6” wide and 8” tall.
The intricate detailed woodwork on this piece is truly outstanding. It takes approximately 3-4 days to manufacture just one of these exquisite pieces from start to finish. The photos don’t do justice to this gorgeous wooden prop.
Special thanks to Mr. Tony Curtis for coming up with the name for this effect.
