    This figure was last updated in August 2014, I have collected all the photos and a summary text here.

    This is an Arapaho Indian shaman figure (New Hope Design) bought, modified and painted in 1993 with an alkyd resin oil paint, compatible with enamels and oil paints. As can be seen, the colours dry quite matt and are still vibrant despite the years. An interesting figure, the scale is slightly bigger than 1/32.
    I've recently rebased this figure on a new base. During the ceremony, the shaman would be blowing a whistle to summon the buffalo. On this piece, I removed the moulded whistle from around her neck and I made a new one out of thin tubing, inserted with a fine wire and attached this to her mouth which was drilled out to take the wire.
