This By My Side Willow Tree® Figurine conveys that from each other, we gather strength through laughter and tears. An original design by textile artist Susan Lordi, she stated this piece is inspired by her relationship with her sisters. The three brunette women stand with their arms around each other wearing long elegant white dresses that fade into blue. Sits on an applied gold leaf, pierced metal base. This carved resin figurine reminds us that it's the fun, silly moments that fill women up when they're with their sisters, girlfriends or cousins. Those shared experiences and laughter form a lifelong reservoir of trust that allows women to be vulnerable around each other. Out of that vulnerability comes strength—and that's exactly what this piece is capturing.
