Sentiment: " a presence of life and light "
This is a lovely 14” tall green pierced metal silhouette of a tree, patterned with birds and vines, on a base. It is sized to complement both the Willow Tree Nativity.
“This piece reflects my love and reverence of trees — their graceful, columnar, beckoning, magical qualities. They have so much character and gesture. When I look up at the canopy of trees in the sunlight, the leaves look dark and lacy — a silhouette of beautiful shapes where the light comes through. I like to look at the delicate patterns created. I wanted to create a two-dimensional tree silhouette, but one that was animated and alive with images of birds, leaves, pomegranates — symbols of life and light. This pierced-metal tree can be used as an architectural element in the Nativity or with The Christmas Story. I hope it adds an interesting detailed pattern to the scene." —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.
