These beautifully crafted mother and son Willow Tree figurines are 20 cm (8") tall. Cast from the artist’s original wood carvings, the statues are hand painted in soft natural tones. This piece celebrates the bond of love between mothers and sons and shows a mother hugging her son tenderly.
Artist Susan Lordi creates each Willow Tree figure so expression is revealed through gestures only. In these touching mother and son figurines, feelings are communicated subtly with a tilt of the head, placement of the hands or a turn of the body.
Here is what Susan Lordi says about this piece "I was thinking about the relationship between a mother and a son of about nine or ten — that certain age when boys start fiercely asserting their independence — and resisting hugs and kisses from their mothers. And yet, at the same time, secretly needing and wanting them. I wanted this sculpture to express that push and pull. Liking the touch but at the same time, pulling away."
This Willow Tree piece speaks in quiet ways and is ideal to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. It will make an ideal gift to celebrate the special relationship mothers and sons have. Perfect for Mother's Day, Christmas and other occasions. Order yours free.
