As made famous by Shahid Malik and Hans Moretti
The magician shows the audience a large cardboard box to the audience which has been folded flat. He opens it out and folds in the bottoms tabs forming the box. His assistant now jumps inside wearing a gold dress. The box seems hardly large enough to hold her. The magician forces her in and closes the top side tabs thus sealing the assistant inside the box. The magician now shows 15 long and sharp dowelling spears which he now proceeds to thrust through the box at random around the box impaling it and the girl inside no doubt. There are no trapdoors here or false bases. The sword are rapidly removed and a gold silk scarf the same colour as the girls dress is thrown in the air...it flys towards and into the box where the girl suddenly emerges in a change of costume in a red dress completely unharmed and no worse the wear for her multi stabbing ordeal ! The perfect illusion....packs very flat, weighs nothing and will fit in your suitcase.
