Susan Lordi says - "Guardian represents the overwhelming feelings of motherhood, and the desire to protect your new baby forever. The image of an infant cradled closely in her mother's arms is a symbol of the tremendous feelings of love a mother experiences when holding her new child. This figure could suggest a guardian spirit of protection. She could also be comforting to someone who has lost a child; a reminder of the love and caring a mother always feels, regardless of where her child is. I used the word 'thee' in the sentiment as an intimate way of talking to an infant. I think the word has a poetic sound and shows reverence and tenderness. It's the sort of word reserved for someone you love."
Artist Susan Lordi hand carves each original Willow Tree® sculpture. 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 the absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan's hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
