Pagoda Box Mystery
The Performer shows an empty small polished wooden box in the shape of a Pagoda. The box has a front door hinged at the bottom. The door has also been provided with a glass through which interior of the box is seen. The Performer also introduces one yellow wooden cube with holes on its two sides; two ropes are seen passing through the hole. The Performer now places the cube inside the box. The two ends of the two ropes come out from the box through two cuts provided on the two side walls of the box. Taking one end of the rope from each side a knot is tied at the top of the box.
Now the Performer holds both ends of the two ropes and lifts the box from the table. Suddenly the box along with the cube gets released from the rope and drop on the table. The Performer is seen holding the two ends of the two ropes.
