A true classic of magic that any magician would be proud to perform. Often called Houdini's Metamorphosis, this packing crate can be examined by audience members and the illusion can be performed up close and surrounded. It's easy to build and easy to troupe with.
The illusion is the instantaneous exchange of the magician who has been locked and handcuffed in the locked trunk with his assistant standing on top. A miracle illusion!
