The Stones of Tutankhamun

(A routine for the ball vase by Doug Gorman with hand turned wooden props by James Riser)

Two ball vases are introduced, along with two colored stones: one white and one black. A stone is put in front of each vase. The lids are removed to show the balls match the colors of the stones. The balls are put in the performer’s pockets, but they immediately return to their respective vases. The stones’ locations are switched. When the lids are removed, the balls have transposed to match the stones in front of the vases! The balls are again pocketed. The stones are returned to their original locations. When the lids are removed, the balls have returned, again following their respective stones! One last time, the balls are pocketed. The black and white stones are rubbed vigorously between the palms. When they are dropped to the table, they have turned red! The lids are removed from the vases, and the balls have returned again, but this time they, too, are both red!

You receive two Riser ball vases: one in purpleheart and one in hard maple. You also receive six balls and four colored stones, plus a DVD and written instructions for the routine. Please note that no shells are included, as they are not needed for the routine.

Price is $325 + $6.50 shipping in the US ($15.50 foreign shipping by Global Priority Mail).
