CHINESE PRAYER VASE.
It defies gravity! The magician shows a red vase and a piece of unprepared rope to his spectators. The vase is seen to be empty. Inserting the rope into the vase, the magician confesses that a genii lives inside of the vase. To prove his point, he turns the vase (with the rope still inside) upside down. The rope remains suspended inside the vase! Then, the magician holds the rope with one hand and lets go of the vase. It remains suspended in the air, as if the genii of the vase were holding on to the rope. At the end of the trick, the magician hands out the rope and the vase for examination.
