The performer shows an elegant wooden drawer box along
with a pack of 8 slightly aged element cards.

Two cards are then chosen by the spectator with absolutely no force of any kind.

The spectator is then asked to shuffle the chosen cards along with the six other ones.

These eight cards are then randomly placed face down around the box.

Now, a small stand and a wooden arrow are removed from the drawer and placed on top of the box.

The arrow is then given a spin and after a few second, the arrow stops pointing to one card.

It is of course one of the cards that was selected by the spectator!

The performer then turns all the remaining cards face up and offers to repeat the effect.

As the performer spins the arrow, the spectator is asked to name their second card and
when the arrow comes to a stop, it is NOT pointing at the correct card!

Suddenly, the arrow begins to mysteriously move in the opposite direction!

When it finally stops, it's found to be pointing directly at the spectator's other selected card!

The effect can be repeated with the arrow pointing to different locations!

The effect is entirely self-contained and requires nothing other than the items seen and used!

The performer remains at a distance during the eerie movement of the arrow!

The beautiful wooden drawer box measures approximately 10.5cm wide x 8.5cm high x 10.5cm deep and
has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish.

Arrow of Truth has been inspired by Tony Lackner's Hand
of Cleopatra and John Good's Clock of San Marcos.

The instructions have been written by John Talbot and outline several extra
routines which can be performed with the "Arrow of Truth."
