Beautiful rubber dove that you can use to produce from equipment, from your pocket- even from inside a bouquet of flowers!
Every magician should have a white dove, and if a live one is too much trouble, this rubber one is your answer! You can also use the Rubber Dove in any situation where using a real dove would be dangerous to the live bird.
A rubber dove can be used in many magic situations. As a production item, you can make it appear from a Dove Pan or a Change Bag. If you work with live doves, you can place the rubber dove in a paper bag, crumple the bag up and reproduce the real dove elsewhere. Looks like a transposition!
This deluxe white rubber dove is the best available on the market. He's handpainted and made of durable white latex. He is similar in size to a real bird, though on the small side for a dove- about 5" long. The rubber construction is hollow and allows for easy compression. You can even conceal a silk inside, and magically produce it!
Because the dove is compressible, you can produce it from a number of unexpected places: a hollowed-out book (open the book, and the dove will puff out to full size), a folded newspaper, an inside jacket pocket, even from inside your shoe.Since the dove is hollow, you can conceal a silk, a silk streamer or a mouth coil inside, and magically produce the silk or paper after you produce the silk.
Dr. Carlo introduced the concept of the Rubber Dove in the late 1940s when he manufactured them and sold them through his Ohio magic shop.White doves are used in magic acts because 1) doves can be controlled to not fly very well, 2) doves tend to be very calm and quiet when confined in small spaces, and 3) the white color shows up well on stage.The White Dove has been one of the most universal symbols of love, peace and safety throughout history. In the Old Testament, Noah released a dove from the Ark after forty days and forty nights of rain. The dove returned with the twig of an olive tree in its beak, signifying that the flood had ended and that it was safe to venture out of the Ark. This is the origin of the symbol of the dove and olive branch. Interested in magic history?
