Turns and plays Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite: March”
Song of Joy now turns atop a musical base, playing a well-known melody from the Nutcracker Suite, “March”. The musical format shows off the hand-carved surface and graceful gestures of this angelic dancer.
“The poetry of movement in dance choreography is what inspired the gestures of these two pieces. I covered the surfaces with intricately carved symbols… on Song of Joy, the carvings are more celestial… sun, moon, stars… alluding to rhythmic cycles and seasons.” (Susan Lordi)
ABOUT WILLOW TREE®
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.
