Juggler

  • Moses Lestz

    The illustration depicts a juggler with a plate of fire on his head ad he is holding two juggling pins that have fire on the ends.I have never see any act with fire on the performers head before but do recall an act where the pins had fire like that and were juggled back and forth between to people.The pins that are laying on the ground are accurate in that a solo juggler will place the pins in a certain position so that the artist can grab another pin with his foot and toss it to a place where it can be added to an already in motion array.I looked at the records in the Circus Report Index but could not locate this particular juggling act.
