Here is a feature illusion that can be done anywhere ... even close up ... even surrounded by spectators. This specially-made basket is so small in appearance and so deceptive that it will fool the experts! The basket is made of strong Fiberglass and decorated to resemble a woven Indian basket. All the extra paraphernalia - the swords, the spear, the cloth - will fit inside the basket. In fact, it's great for carrying the rest of your show. Special illustrated and detailed instructions and a complete routine are supplied. This illusion is small and lightweight - easy to carry, yet it is big in effect. Publicize that you have this illusion in your show and you will receive more bookings!

The basket is freely shown. A girl is introduced and she steps into the basket. She tries to get down into the basket but has difficulty owing to the smallness of the basket. A large Oriental type cloth is thrown over the girl and the performer manages to force the girl into the basket by pushing and shoving on the girl's head.

The basket lid is put on as the cloth is removed. The cloth is bunched up and thrown into the air. The performer may even stomp the cloth - it is impossible for the girl to be hidden there. He now runs four swords through the lid and out each of the four sides of the basket, following this by plunging the spear down through the center of the lid and into the bottom of the basket. The swords and the spear are removed. The cloth is thrown over the basket and the lid and cloth are lifted together. They are both taken away, disclosing the girl. The cloth is again thrown over the girl and she is again forced into the basket. Then the performer steps into the basket. After stomping all about the inside of the basket the performer steps out and replaces the lid. This is most convincing. He now appears to see something off to one side and approaches the spot and drapes the cloth. A form is seen to appear under the cloth. The performer walks over to the basket and throws it into the basket. Suddenly the cloth moves and it raises higher and higher. Upon being thrown to one side, the cloth discloses the sensational reappearance of the girl
