Behold the awe and wonder of the Christmas Story. As enduring as the story it portrays, the Willow Tree Nativity is as loved today as when it was originally introduced in 2000. Its simplicity and form has made it a timeless classic.
The Christmas Story is a story from the past but the overwhelming emotions of holding a new baby, starting a new family, and wanting to protect them forevermore are present today in every culture and every age. My hope is that the gestures of Mary and Joseph will represent these powerful feelings of love and protection. Six hand-painted resin figures, tallest is 9.5h. Includes Mary, Joseph, shepherd, donkey and two sheep. Packaging box includes enclosure card for gift-giving.Dust with soft cloth or soft brush. Avoid water or cleaning solvents. Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope all the emotions of a life well lived. 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 Susans hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.Susan Lordi's artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she conceives, sculpts and carves each piece, always with a focus on gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... Her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
