The magician holds a cloth covered tray in his hand. On the tray is resting a square panel. The performer removes the panel from the table. He then holds it up so that the audience can see that it contains nothing. At this point the magician is holding just the cloth covered empty tray. Performer replaces the panel back onto the tray. The whole thing is placed onto a table. First, the performer removes the cloth, then lifts away the panel from the tray. To the surprise of the entire audience, a large bowl of water is found to be sitting on the tray! This illusion is VERY visual and can be done surrounded!
