Inspired by the expressiveness of dance, the Willow Tree® Dance of Life Figurine portrays an angel celebrating life and love through physical motion. Her graceful gestures are enhanced by her flowing gown and wire angel wings, and she is raised on a slender post to suggest flight.
The surface of this dancing angel's dress is adorned with intricate carvings which, in combination with the white paint scheme, create the illusion of shear lace. Artist Susan Lordi describes the carvings like this: "The carvings on Dance of Life are suggestive of fruitfulness and fecundity... pomegranates and birds, intertwined with vines and berries, refer to the richness and renewal of life."
The Dance of Life figurine was designed as part of the Willow Tree classic nativity display, but its beauty can just as easily be appreciated on its own. A lovely wedding gift or on the arrival of a new baby, this piece will be enjoyed year round and especially as part of a holiday display.
