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 came on strong as my daughter moved to France earlier this year. I will miss her terribly, but at the same time, I am so happy and excited for her. It is a personal message to my daughter, that regardless of whether we're apart or together, she's always close to me. The sentiment applies to any age... a child going away to camp, a teenager leaving for college... the message is the same. The intertwined images carved on the figures' dresses visually echo this sentiment. I understand this piece from both sides - having been a daughter, and having gone through the experience of raising a daughter to adulthood. I hope both mothers and daughters will connect to the emotions of this piece." - Susan Lordi. The item includes a gift tag with sentiment 'Apart or together, always close to me'. Close to me figurine is a perfect gift from a mother to daughter. Not a toy or children's product. Intended for adults only. Height: 20.0cm
