This beautifully crafted "Around You" Willow Tree figurine is 17 cm (6.5") tall. Cast from the artist’s original wood carvings, the statue is hand painted in soft natural tones. This piece features a couple sat down holding hands in a dance like pose.
Artist Susan Lordi creates each Willow Tree figure so expression is communicated subtly with a tilt of the head, placement of the hands or a turn of the body.
Here is what Susan Lordi says about this piece: "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."
This Willow Tree piece speaks in quiet ways and is ideal to comfort, protect and inspire. It will make an gift ideal for anniversaries, weddings, Valentine's Day and other occasions. Order your Around You figurine free.
