There are many
production boxes/tubes that are easily converted to hardboard and
duct tape props for the home grown magic show. Lets make
all of them at once or at least combine several.
combines the Louis Histed Square Circle, with the Kuma Tubes or
Buddha Tubes of uncertain origin, but named after Kinjiro Tanko
Kumajo, better known as Kuma, who impressed a lot of his
contemporary peers (including Okito) with his presentation.
A big feature of
the Kuma Tubes was the final production of a brass vase
apparently filled with water. Once the brass vase was removed
from the tubes, it was shown to be too large to fit back inside
Instead of a
brass vase, Ive substituted a goldfish bowl filled with
water and live (or fake) goldfish. The goldfish bowl is larger in
diameter than the tubes from which it was produced, in true Kuma
Tube fashion. Then I top that by producing a vase filled with
flowers that is also larger than the tube from which it came.
Everything (except the glass fishbowl and flowers) can be made
from hardboard and duct tape and maybe some Dollar Store odds and
ends for decoration).
