Originally sculpted by textile artist Susan Lordi, this spiritual figurine shows a kneeling brunette girl her hands folded in prayer.

Crafted of resin for durability, this peaceful prayer Willow Tree® sculpture is painted by hand and will make a soothing desktop or tabletop accent. Or give this mediating figurine to someone who could use a reminder in his or her daily life to breathe deep and relax.
In the Hindu culture, hands folded in prayer symbolize the greeting "Namaste." "Nama" means bow, "as" means I, and "te" means you. Therefore, Namaste means "I bow to you." Common in yoga practice, it's a customary greeting when individuals meet, and a goodbye upon their parting. The gesture Namaste represents the belief there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.
