The lady in the green skirt is Mrs Lewis and the woman in the foreground is the daughter. Purportedly when Vicki Lewis Series was in sculpture/production, her mother Gloria, sister Suzanne and father were also sculptured. The timeline of that, was early 1970’s.
However people mistakenly believe the mannequin in the photo above are Mr and Mrs Lewis. But the woman is actually model January Dickson. Her make up is designed to give her a more mature look, but she still looks significantly younger than her male companion.
