Nothing Up Their Sleeves:  Hands Of The Great Magicians A magic history & art creation by Kari Hendler Great magic, performed by a master, is a work of art. Their hands are a signature of each magician’s unique style.

For centuries, magicians’ hands have fascinated us: misdirecting our attention, manipulating props, large and small, and making the impossible seem jaw-droppingly possible. We are transfixed as skilled hands cause coins to multiply, animals to appear from nothingness, and our chosen card to mysteriously “rise to the top of the deck”. Their hands shape our appreciation for the art and craft of magi

c. Nothing Up Their Sleeves: Hands Of The Great Magicians makes real a long-held dream of magic photographer Kari Hendler -- to preserve forever these symbols of magic’s storied past and present, and carry them into its expectant, wonder-filled future. Encouraged by many of magic’s brightest stars, Kari has created highly detailed life-castings of their hands. She has painstakingly rendered them as realistic, three-dimensional sculptures, each with its own unique characteristics and personality. Each pair of hands, from magicians whose combined careers span hundreds of years, represents a moment frozen in time. In Nothing Up Their Sleeves, quite literally, the hand is no longer quicker than the eye.
