“Gold is used on this piece to represent something precious and valuable — the intangible gift of generosity. The gold box is perhaps a metaphor for the most generous gift we can offer — the time we give to others. This piece could be for people who have a spirit of selflessness, or whose career warrants this. I think it could be a unique way to say thank you to a volunteer or caregiver — someone who works tirelessly for little monetary reward. The sentiment ‘Generosity is your shining gift’ could mean the giver is returning, and recognizing, the value of one’s generosity.” (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. The 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 the giver and receiver.
