Posted below are images from an Egyptian Seance Act where commercial magic props were hand-painted and detailed to aid in the historically accurate presentation of bizarre Egyptian magic.

How does one incorporate a sucker die box into a seance?

Are these your props?

I lived for 6 years in Cairo and became pretty familiar with Egyptian culture. The glyphs, art and color choices are VERY authentic!

Thanks for sharing!

When performing a seance with a returning Egyptian magician spirit, the die box is used with the wood pyramid in a story of the Egyptian myth of Horus, who was killed, mutilated and resurrected by Isis, his mother. The theme goes well with the die box apparatus. Thanks, I studied many, many books about Egyptian art and design.

Would highly suggest this book for Egyptian Magic seance or magic performance:
Ancient Egyptian Magic-Bob Brier
Not text-heavy, dry reading at all.

Great book! :)
I write on a site about how to be a mentalist.
