Caption: Levitation trick, 19th-century artwork. This trick is being performed by an Indian fakir. The term fakir refers to religious ascetics and mystics who perform magic and feats of endurance. In stage magic, such levitation is achieved by a combination of optical illusions and supporting wires. Artwork from the 17th volume (first period of 1896) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
