years in the making...
story of King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone has been passed down,
translated, and presented in thousands of ways for almost a thousand
years. A story of power, destiny, and magic that has withheld the test
of time. The story is simple, but the implications are grand. Christopher
Wiehl has taken inspiration from this timeless story and has created
one of his strongest effects yet.
a card selected by a spectator, while the rest of the deck is placed
into the box. The chosen card is then replaced, only half way into the
deck, much like King Arthur's sword in the stone. Like the tale, the
card is now held by the deck, which is now as solid as a rock.
spectator holds the card, and as the story goes, tries to pull the card
from the grips of the deck, only to find out that the entire deck is
now solid, and simply hanging in mid-air by the one chosen card. With
a gentle wave, the sorcerer releases the bonds of the solid deck, and
the card releases along with every other card that has now become, fully
restored and freely spreadable as if nothing ever happened.
a beautiful, timeless and inspiring as the story of "The Sword
in the Stone", now cleverly infused into a fantastic piece of magic
that you can easily perform anywhere, anytime.
