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."I wanted to sculpt a young couple, finding romantic love - the butterflies and uncertainty, the chemistry and electricity - discovered when you're in each other's presence. I wanted the piece to be tender and intimate, elegant and quiet... Since the pose is derived from dance, I also wanted it to appear to have movement as you look at different angles. My challenge was to carve completely in the round, so that from every view, you have a different understanding... you see variations. There's no correct way to position the piece. There are three touch points - their fingers on both hands, and the tops of their heads. I like this bit of connection... the tingly excitement and shared energy that comes from moments together with a new love." - Susan Lordi. The item includes a gift tag with sentiment '...just the nearness of you'. Around You figurine could be a perfect wedding gift for the young couple or a Velentine's Day gift. Not a toy or children's product. Intended for adults only. Height: 16.5cm
