This beautifully crafted My Sister, My Friend Willow Tree figure is 20 cm (8") tall. Cast from the artist’s original wood carvings, the statues are hand painted in soft natural tones. This piece shows two women holding hands in a friendship gesture.
Artist Susan Lordi creates each Willow Tree figure so expression is revealed through gestures only. In these touching figurines, feelings are communicated subtly with a tilt of the head, placement of the hands or a turn of the body.
Here is what she says about this piece: "A sister can save your life. A safety net. You never laugh harder than when you’re laughing with your sisters... or very close dear friends. You share the same history; the inside jokes that no one else would understand in the same way. A sister knows your faults and somehow puts up with them, and loves you in spite of them.
I have two sisters – one nearby and one farther away. When I’m with either one, or both, the walks we take and the talks we have are like one long ongoing conversation... we cover all subjects about anything and everything. By my side, my sisters are with me, in the present moment. This piece is about the rich and sustaining, comfortable constancy of lifelong friends."
This Willow Tree piece speaks in quiet ways and is ideal to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. It will make a much loved gift for a sister or close friend on special occasions. Order your "My Sister, My Friend" ornament free.
