For that make-or-break performance when nothing but the creation of life will do!
You bring the crowd in close, then open a small pocket knife. Your hands are otherwise empty. The blade is seen to be normal.
Placing blade on bare flesh, you pierce a fingertip and squeeze out a single drop of blood.
Again, both hands are seen to be completely empty except for the single drop of blood on your fingertip.
You carefully show both sides of a fingertip from your other hand and slowly press it down onto the drop of blood. You silently wait there for a moment, fingertip to fingertip. You slowly lift one finger and the drop of blood is gone! In it's place, perched on the end of your finger, is a living breathing ladybug!
The creation of life...on the tip of your finger.
