The Eye Am Symbol represents the actualized consciousness energy of an Essence ignited in a never-ending journey (the spiral) within a singular life form (the triangle). While remaining within its form, the Essence extends its unique energetic contribution into the present moment to create a reality (refraction) of its own state of self-love and perfection. This symbol is both sovereign and universal.
TRUE EXPERIENCE HAS ONLY THE MOMENT... LOOK THROUGH THE EYES OF LOVE TO BEHOLD THE PLAN, THE JOURNEY.

The "Proud" Sculpture©
A New Edition to “The Little Guys” Sculpture Series©Sculpted in 2018, artist Sheri Herr is proud to present a new edition to her “Little Guys” Sculpture Series. The newest figure is positioned cross legged, with an open posture to suggest a genuine feeling of self-pride. Although the figure is named “Proud” and can represent feelings such as pride, joy, accomplishment, and self-love, research has demonstrated the multitude of emotional states, both positive and negative, these figures can embody and reflect. If you own “The Little Guys” Sculpture Series© you will want to add this piece to give your set an even broader range of emotional states for clients to connect with. Gift this uplifting figure to someone you are especially proud of or gift it to yourself as a reminder that the most important person you can love, and support is you.

“The Little Guys” Sculptures are empty vessels, innocently awaiting a past, present and future that arrives with the one who views or holds them. They are designed as tactile tools and have clinically proven to powerfully facilitate the processing of difficult emotions with different ages, cultures, or backgrounds. Made of marble dust from the same quarry where Golden Age Greeks harvested stones to build the Acropolis in 447-438 BC., each piece is hand-made and meticulously sanded to a smooth, inviting touch. A clinical study completed with 100 participants, The Range of Perceived Emotion States in 'The Little Guys' Figures, revealed the perceptions of these sculptures was highly unique to each viewer.
Experiencing "The Little Guys" Sculptures
Special Edition Sculptures
“I bought one of the little guys many years ago and it has sat in the lap of so many clients and has even gone home with them periodically as a transitional object. So I was thrilled when Sheri developed a new set and I bought all nine of them. They are sitting on the desk in my psychotherapy office. When a client is experiencing a strong feeling I have them choose which of the poses feels right, have them hold the concrete object and talk about it. It has stimulated many dialogues (the angry one pounding the floor reminded a client of her adult child when she was younger and memories she never shared arose). The sculptures are evocative, beautiful and moving and feel so good in the hands.”

“The Little Guys have found their new home in my office! I LOVE them and they have been useful in my counseling practice. I encourage clients to hold the one that reflects their feelings; the quiet thoughtfulness of this process results in self refection and expression. They are so exquisite that they always cause a silent pause as the viewer takes in the depth of emotion. “

“(Using the sculptures) was very powerful with the group. Group members that ordinarily do not say much were able to put words with emotions. This will be a great spring board for further group!”

“Sheri’s ‘Little Guys’ have an honored and central place on my sand tray shelves. They are at once evocative and ambiguous, so they are ideal for a modality that relies on projections. From the first day they appeared in my office, they have been put into use by my clients — usually playing a starring role in their psychic dramas.”

“(The Sculptures) facilitated children of addict to express their feelings in a safe way…. The client was able to understand more deeply how her addictive behavior impacts her children through their working with the sculptures.”

“I have the Little Guys on a mantel in a very prominent place in my office. They are conversation starters with colleagues and clients. Many times a client has been stuck — not sure how they feel. I have them pick a figure from the mantel. bring it back and describe the feelings of the figure to their partner. Often the partner has even looked at the figure and said “I wonder if you are not also feeling….” They are a marvelous tool for deepening affect in addition to being well made and very handsome.”

“Kids can be willing to share their pain, but between sports and video games, it’s often difficult to start any deep conversations when you only see them for 15 minutes at a time. I acquired a set of the Little Guys, and one day just left them out on the table. The response from the teens was fascinating. Anyone walking past the table to get a snack had to stop and look, then HAD to pick up one figure after another. Everyone made comments about them, but my favorite was when one teen pointed to the Crumbling figure and said, “Yup, I know just how he feels.”
I think that is the real beauty of the Little Guys — that everyone can connect with at least one of them, and know that they are not the only one who has felt that way. The figures made it so easy to get some much needed “venting” and ultimately “healing” conversations started.”

“The ‘little guy’ that I purchased was Crumbling…. I immediately saw him as my reaction to growing older & fighting against it, but determined to make it better. The cracks indicated to me my arthritis and the pain, physical and emotional. This is my first week of retirement and I look at my little guy on my desk at home and repeat ‘I’ll do it!’ Thank you for him!”
I teach English to adults from countries all over the world. Some have come to America looking for a better job, while others have come to escape terrible situations. All have different fears and insecurities, and all are homesick.
For our conversation time in class, we are always looking for simple, clear pictures that they can describe with their new, limited English words. Usually we use pages torn out of magazines, but it’s difficult to find photos that they can all relate to. For example, a bride & groom from an American magazine look very different than a bride from India or Africa.
However, when I saw the Little Guys, I knew they would be PERFECT for our classes, and they are! The universal emotions of fear, joy, embarrassment, loneliness, etc. are easily understood by all. The students are so eager to hold them, and with heads vigorously nodding, they will say, “Yes! I feel like THEESE one!”
My students love the Little Guys, and so do I!
