This is the Sawing a Woman in half that thrilled them years ago, but it's still a fooler. It's the one Dante and Thurston made famous. There are no fake body parts and audience members are invited up to hold on to the feet and hands at all times. Once your assistant is sawn in half with an actual lumber jack's saw, metal blades are inserted, the boxes are slid apart and the magician can actually step through the space. Her head and hands extend through one box, her feet another. This plan is ideal for the serious students of illusion because it is a classic and has great historical significance. We give you all the details to build or fully understand the workings of this miracle!
