Houdini's Crypt
Buy Houdini's Crypt
10.5" x 10.5"
glossy photo print

This painting is about Harry Houdini, The most famous American magician and Escape Artist noted for his sensational escape acts. His daring feats of extrication from shackles, ropes, and handcuffs and from various locked containers ranging from milk cans to coffins to prison cells were extraordinary. In a typical act he was shackled with chains and placed in a box that was locked, roped, and weighted. The box was submerged from a boat, to which he returned after freeing himself underwater. In another outdoor exhibition he allowed himself to be suspended, head down, about 75 feet (23 m) above ground and then freed himself from a straitjacket. These demonstrations were typically watched by many thousands of people. Houdini's uncanny escape abilities depended partly on his great physical strength and agility and partly on his extraordinary skill at manipulating locks.

So how can the man with extraordinary skills like these, can stay unescaped from the crypt after death ???
