Sentiment: " A tapestry of memories...beautifully woven, deeply loved "

 

This is a lovely 5”h hand-painted resin figure. It shows a standing figure, hands crossed at chest. Dress, hair, hands and head extensively carved with symbols of nature and memories. Gold-leaf rubbing on entire figure.

 

"This piece is very much about healing. Her gesture is protective. While carving the relief pattern on her dress, I just kept carving... I wanted to push the message further, so I kept going, surrounding her with nature and everyday objects—metaphorical of a life well lived. The carved icons reflect our connections to those we love. Our story is one we share with others, all woven together, as in a tapestry. When we lose someone special, our shared experiences and memories become all the more precious to us." –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.
