This uplifting Willow Tree® Hope Figurine visually expresses the concept of hope in a way that words can only approach. Artist Susan Lordi embodies the purity of hope in the carefree form of a playful child figurine clad in white, while the simple wire balloon proclaims the power of hope to lift us up—elevating our spirit in the face of adversity. This simple Willow Tree statue illustrates the power of hope and will look at home in any décor. It makes a thoughtful gift for someone dealing with a loss or other misfortune.
Using family and friends as models, Susan Lordi tries to capture a moment in time, or express a feeling through her Willow Tree figurines. Pieces are cast in resin from her original carvings and then individually painted by hand.
With the Willow Tree Hope Figurine, Susan reminds us to never give up. Many have tried to express the meaning of hope in words. Some ideas are as simple as making the word an acronym, such as "Hold On, Pain Ends" or "Have Only Positive Expectations." Other interpretations, such as that of Bishop Desmond Tutu, are more poetic: "Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness."
The common theme? Hope helps carry us through trials and on to better days. Our hope is that this simple Willow Tree statue will be a blessing to you or a loved one when facing life's challenges.
