This beautifully crafted Willow Tree figure is 14 cm (5.5") tall. Cast from the artist’s original wood carvings, the statue is hand painted in soft natural tones. This piece features a boy kneeling on a rock and holding out a budding plant in a pot.
Artist Susan Lordi creates each Willow Tree figure so expression is revealed through gestures only.
Here is what she says about this piece: "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."
This Willow Tree piece speaks in quiet ways and is ideal to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. It will make a much loved gift for friends and relatives. Order your "Something Special" ornament online free.
