“Angel of Freedom holds a wire butterfly in her outstretched hands as a metaphor of freedom and independence, courage and confidence. This piece has a very open interpretation, and can fit a lot of different occasions. For graduates, for new careers, for a personality with a free spirit, for someone who loves nature and butterflies, in recognition of service to our country… in memory of a loved one.” (Susan Lordi)
Willow Tree® is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
