This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection. This 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. The Holy Family collection is ideal for those looking for a smaller nativity option. 7.5h hand-painted resin figure.
Packaging box includes enclosure card for gift-giving. Dust with soft cloth or soft brush.
Avoid water or cleaning solvents. This four-piece set of animals was designed to specifically fit the small, intimate scale of The Holy Family. The Sheltering Animals are proportional in scale to The Holy Family smaller versions of other animals Ive carved, with a few little tweaks in the details. I like that the gestures of their heads and ears express watchful attentiveness.
My favorite is the goat he shows his personality in his stance! The 7.5h figure is complemented by a backdrop of pierced curved metal, suggestive of twinkling stars. Four animals give watch, warmth and protection. Created for Willow Tree® The Holy Family collection. Four animals, tallest is 3h.
Includes donkey, goat and two sheep. This pierced-metal backdrop was created to complement The Holy Family, though it can be used as a beautiful backdrop for other angels or figures as well. The repetitive swirling concentric mark-making is suggestive of twinkling stars at night. The roof is an intertwined, organic structure that suggests a bower of twigs or branches.
Since the surface patterning is complex with tiny elements, I wanted to pare down the form to the simplest possible. Its basically a single sheet of pierced metal, curved to allow it to stand and represent a shelter for The Holy Family and animals. Formed of thin, pierced metal and painted by hand. Packaged in protective Willow Tree box.
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.
