Lady is a testament to the fact that, even though life is unfair, it is important to keep trying. The world is not a series of straight lines where things fall magically into place. It hurts when you're the one who gets the short end of the stick. Lady doesn't let injustice stop her. In the end, the crooked path often works out better than expected. Lady is a reminder that determination is the key to ultimate success.
Like the Lady of Justice, Lady stands tall, wearing a blind about her head and a toga-style dress. She shows that justice is not impartial by her lifted blindfold. In her hands, she holds tipped scales. Lady suggests that when the situation looks unbalanced, it's time to move on with grace. Her back panel reads: "No Fair." Sometimes, honestly recognizing bias is the best way to move past such an obstacle.

About the Maker: Christy Coltrin
The making of this artwork started at home using clay and cake-decorating tools, as she thought about what was most important in life. Once the characters and short stories were defined, Christy took the clays into the sculpture studio she co-owns with her husband. These petite, sculptural figures are made using time-honored casting methods. Each Tiny Sparks edition is produced in two intimate sizes: the Ambassadors editions are about four finger tall, and the Travelers editions are about the size of a thumb. Slight variations in size and finish are part of the handmade charm.
