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. "This piece was directed by the models. The poses that the girls naturally assumed showed their relationship with their dad much better than I could have instructed them. Their father was the anchor - and the girls fluttered around him. I got a sense of how the girls saw him as strong and reassuring. They looked at him with a 'my dad can do anything' look. The dad was clearly having fun being with his daughters. I wanted to make this sculpture a two-way piece - the girls look to his strength and stability, and he looks to them as his greatest source of joy. I think the beauty of a good father/daughter relationship is in its duality. I hope the sentiment can be read from either perspective - father to daughters, or daughter to father." - Susan Lordi. The item includes a gift tag with sentiment 'Looking at you, I see wonder, joy, strength'. Not a toy or children's product. Intended for adults only. Height: 20.5cm
