Sentiment : " An embrace of Peace "

 

This is a lovely 8.5”h hand-painted resin figure. It shows a standing figure in grey/green dress, holding baby lamb in arms.

 

"The idea for Peace on Earth was formulating as our country was making plans to go to war. In a way, it was my response. I wanted to make this figure very human, not an angel. It's not about celestial peace, but peace on earth among us — what we need to contemplate now. I wanted her feet to be on the ground, not flying in the clouds. I gave her dress a very earthy color to 'ground' it. The lamb has always been a symbol of peace; the woman, a peacemaker. Peace — here on earth — is what I tried to portray in color, symbol and look.” —Susan Lordi

 

Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
