I am looking to add a section to my show that highlights Chinese themed magic. I already perform the following effects which have a Chinese/oriental theme:

Linking rings
Chinese torn and restored paper
Chinese sticks

Do you have any suggestions as to other effects that would fit this theme?

Thanks for the anticipated help. :)

There is an old effect that I believe Ching Ling Soo used to do. A bowl of water is show. The magician rolls up both sleeves, in this showing both hands empty. Takes some water in his hands, a lets it fall back into the bowl. He does this several times. The final time, no water goes into the bowl, the magician opens his hands to show an ice cube.

Small effect that can be used as an intro do any effects that involve water. I think it was on The Learned Pig Project.

Production boxes painted in oriental style would also work, especially if you are producing doves and what not.
