I used to work as a magician’s assistant for many years. Then I deiced I had enough. The main reason was that the magician was very clumsy. He could drop me down during the levitation routine hurting me very bad. Or when he was sawing me I was always scared he might really cut me in half. I thank Saint Helen for she helped me to make up my mind, take all the acts we used to do and create my own performance routine. I became one of the few female magicians. I have a big success, and I’m constantly asked to perform at different events.

I offer this retablo to Saint Benedict, a patron saint protecting from black magic, for making it that way so David Blaine had to come out of his bubble. He had hypnotized all the world with his withcraft, and after this failure people see him as he really is, just a show-off!
