History – Time Capsule & Struggle Bringing this to fruition. 

4 years vested in this mission. This scarce exotic treasure was procured deep in the Amazon, by way of a 4th generation shaman. The journey long and arduous required us to take part in a spiritual ayahuasca soul purification ritual before we were allowed to even discuss our interests in purchasing a limited number of the sacred Money Paw’s. Getting them was one struggle, getting them stateside yet another. Despite having to leave one of our crew in Manaus as we journeyed by boat with a Yanomanmi Indian guide on the Orinoco river first into southern Venezuela and from there transported by cargo  plane to Panama. From that point forward no more details will be provided. The end result—we have a limited number of authentic Monkey Paws available to the discriminating performer who appreciates scarce exotic apparatus.

Bewitching—Unearthly – Spellbinding!  What else would you expect from a BUMA – House of Magic Product!

    This is an interesting prop. I had hoped that the gimmick would be practical to perform the effect as shown, and perhaps it is in front of a stationary camera. However for me it is too awkward and angle sensitive to perform in-person and under fire. Some magicians in some venues might be able to overcome these limitations. That usage is not for me. On the other hand, I feel that by itself, without the gimmick bit, it could be a valid item to use, as a pendulum or just as a talism in a bizarre presentation. For that usage alone, though, I think it is overpriced.

    Received the Monkey Paw Deluxe. It is great. The details are incredible and in combination with the box, is a conversation starter. My experience is that you only need good audience management, really based on my experience there is really no significant issues with angles. The gimmick is incredible and really is 100% examinadle. Love this piece, with little practice easy to master, highly recommended!
