Why Ha? About 4 months ago, I did a similar trick for a rabbit. And I can say that it cost me quite expensive.
I do not want to give public references to the material - which was taken as the basis of my trick.

Perhaps someone knows the correct name of this trick or a general concept.

This ingenious combination of thought - a cloud and a dove - from the point of view of the THEATER is logically justified. For this I want to say thank you to the author! My applause! Smile

It's simple. This effect is way over priced. If it were half the price, it would be a different story especially since most of the effect is just handling and nothing really special.

I do not believe this dove production is angle proof for the type of venues most magicians perform at, with audiences at your feet.

Or on the sides.

A similar trick - but the hat in my opinion is not justified.

Fred Kaps performed with 2 top hats on each side of him with one of his award winning acts.

Justified, of course, he is a magician, and one of the symbols of a magician is a top had. Another is white gloves, another is a magic wand, and how about the famous rabbit. Playing cards, dice, coins, cups, are the tools a magician uses.

Logos or symbols, all professions have objects attached to them.

Is there an exact name for this trick and who is its inventor? Thanks for any links. Smile

Eugene, the exact name for the effect is Cloud Surprise, the inventor/manufacturer is Amazo Magic. That is most likely Amazo in the video, I believe his real name is Sandro Loporcaro, but don't hold me to it.

Seems like a redundant question. Your topic title says "Cloud Surprise" by Amazo. The link to penguin you supplied shows "Cloud Surprise" by Amazo. I think you had the answer to your question before asking it. Sorry if that sounds a little rude, just a little confused.

Sorry for the confusion, just wondering if anyone knows who first applied this principle.
Often, new inventors do not give any mention of the creators of the past.
They change the appearance of the effect and give it away for their invention.
I'm not talking about Amazo - just always want to trace the chain of changes.
I have seen prop many times - the conjurer's hat. But Amazo did a beautiful and logical routine. I like it.
But it is always historically interesting to learn about the first person - who performed and came up with the trick. Thank you!

Eugene, you're mistaken, not every time the method has been used before. Some think of it, but sees the flaws in performing it.

Amazo looks to young to have seen and read the Supreme Encyclopedia of Dove Magic. There are similar ideas in the books, but not exactly. That is having a bird behind a book or picture, and simply pulling it out.

Kukuchi of Japan also had a flower bouquet, that held in the hand, the bird appeared from the bouquet.

Now take those methods, and do some work and thinking, and you have Cloud Surprise.

On Amazo's website he has a different designed Coin Ladder, and a nice looking lamp for the milk in light bulb. He does seem to be creative.
