Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculptures representing sentiments of love, closeness, healing, courage, hope...all the emotions we encounter in life. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree sculpture. Pieces are cast in resin from her original carvings, and then individually painted by hand with lead-free paint "The gesture of something special is one of protection and caring for something precious... our children, our earth, our natural resources. I see it as a hopeful piece about possibilities... about every child, doing his or her share. The rock is etched with words and images. The puzzle pieces allude to how we are all inextricably linked together... they're also symbols of children with autism. 'special' can mean many things - the special responsibility to care for our planet - and to nurture ALL our children to care for their future. 'Something' can be interpreted on many levels. The little sprout is an unknown. What's it going to become? And the boy is a sprout too... what's he going to become? He could represent hope for the future... This piece could be a symbol of newness and beginnings. For many years we've wanted to experiment with environmentally friendly packaging that wouldn't increase breakage. We're excited to try it with the packaging of 'something special'. The inner shell is made from biodegradable paper pulp, so now both shell and box can be easily recycled" - Susan Lordi. The item includes a gift tag with sentiment 'You make the world a better place'. Not a toy or children's product. Intended for adults only. Height: 14.0cm
