This is Maiya. She is the first the my new series I call..."The Spiritual Revealers” from “The Village of Gourdeous People”. I have donated here to the Jeffersonson County Art Guild in Fairbury, NE to be raffled off.
The flyer I created for them reads as follows:
The Jefferson County Art Guild is proud to offer “Maiya” an original one-of-a-kind hand sculpted figure to be raffled on Sunday June 7th at the art show held during “The Wild West Days” located at the old gym at 703 K Street, Fairbury, NE.
Tickets are $1.00 per ticket or $5.00 for 6 tickets.
Tickets can be purchased from any Jefferson County Art Guild member until the time of the drawing or by calling Lucky at 402 324-4188 or Joyce Prince at 402 729-5755.

Please contact Lucky Stradley by email ( to purchase tickets by paypal.
You do not need to be present to win. If the figure needs to be shipped to the winning ticket holder, the winning ticket holder is responsible for the cost of the shipping. All proceeds will go to the advancement of art in Jefferson County.
Maiya’s message: The truth should never be kept hidden… forever. It is often said… “The truth shall set you free”. It is also said…”Do no harm”. It is not whether or not it is the truth, but it is more often whether or not revealing the truth will do harm. The prajna is the wisdom to know the difference. So remember… “It is not what you say; it is how you say it; and when.”

This figure is a very detailed work of art and has countless hours of fine workmanship.
This figure is 12” tall including the base. The figure rests firmly on the base that is 7" diameter.
It is a mixed media sculpt consisting of Quality Polymer Clay, Apoxie Sculpt, a gourd, and many embellishments.
NO molds were used!
There is an armature through the arms and hands.
This figure is entirely hand painted .
The costuming is all designed and hand made by Lucky.
The body of the figure is open to reveal a compartment.
