Voice from the Great Beyond. Whispering Buddha. Los Angeles: F.G. Thayer, ca. 1920. Questions asked of the Buddha are answered in a faint whisper by the figure, which sit alone on its own table, well away from any possible interaction with secret assistants or the magician. The effect utilized the technology first adapted to magic by David P. Abbott in his Talking Teakettle. 30 x 18 x 12”. Paint flaking, else very good. Owned by Thayer’s chief mechanic and designer, and the sculptor and builder of this effect, Carl Owen. The Buddha was given to John Daniel by Owen when the two worked together as co-owners of Owen Magic Supreme in the 1950s. The only such Buddha of this exact makeup and design with the elaborate base, adornments, finishing touches. Third party shipping required.
