The Hero’s Horse

We recently traveled down south once again to pick up a most unusual and magnificent prop, the Hero’s Horse by Owen Magic Supreme. One of our customers is flying in this next Monday to personally have a private demonstration before he purchases it.

The Hero’s Horse is a very artistic and imposing piece that can be displayed in one’s home or office and no one would ever believe that it was actually a very sophisticated magic trick.

One of only SIX ever produced, this extraordinary prop commands a $25,000 price tag. Its inner workings and engineering are so complex and impressive that it’s a study in mastery and inventiveness. In fact, so clever is it, you’re actually tempted to divulge its secrets.

Rather than stumble through an explanation, let me allow our online description to paint a picture for you of what an onlooker experiences.

Hero’s Horse by Owen Magic Supreme

One of six ever made, Owen has recreated and embellished one of the Alexandrian “Temple Wonders” first described in a manuscript by Hero of Alexandria nearly 2000 years ago.

We are pleased to announce our new association with Owen Magic Supreme. Hocus Pocus will be representing an array of Owen high quality magic props and paraphernalia from their vast product line. Known worldwide for creating props and equipment for top working professionals, the Owen name is recognized as one that is synonymous with magic of the highest caliber.

Effect: The performer twice passes a solid steel sword through the horse’s neck from top to bottom, yet the horse’s head remains firmly attached.

Commenting that the horse may be thirsty after such an ordeal, the performer offers a glass of water, which the horse drinks down with a “slurp.” The glass is put down in a strategic spot, and after a moment, nature takes its course in an unexpected way. On the spectator’s command, the horse immediately stops what it is doing to conclude the presentation on an amusing note.

“Hero’s Horse” is both esthetically beautiful and mechanically remarkable. The liquid effects are accomplished in a historically appropriate manner, without springs, pumps or moving parts. This museum-quality piece is only one example of Owen Magic’s custom engineering and building capabilities.

The entire illusion stands 60 inches tall and is 36 inches across and 24 inches deep.

Included is a custom built ATA case for safe transport.

The Geometrick Illusion

Also, as he is a serious Owen Magic admirer, our client has strongly hinted that he may be purchasing the Geometrick Illusion as well. Needless to say, we are very enthusiastically anticipating a successful visit.

Acquired from a private collection, the Geometrick Illusion>, leads the field in a new generation of innovative stage illusions that are 100% angle-proof!

The cooler weather is a welcome change making yard work far more enjoyable. I’m planning on having a great weekend. Hope you do too.

More news later,

Paul
