- We will be selling raffle tickets beginning in February 2013 and ending September 1, 2013. Two sets of the miniature version of the Fishermen's Family Sculpture, aka "maquettes", will be raffled, leaving one set available for purchase (see below!). The size of the maquettes are as follows:
Mother: Base to hand 9". Base is 3.5" long x 3" wide
Girl connected to mother: Base to head 4". Base is 3" long x 1.5" wide
