Jasper Maskelyne performing 'The Sands of the Desert trick'. Originated in the early 19th Century, it sees the magician stir different colours of dry sand into a bowl of water, before reaching in and bring out fistfuls of dry sand, in their original colours. Jasper performed this at the Royal Variety show in 1932. Also known as ‘Sands of the Ganges’ or the 'Hindu Sands'.
