Mother and child share an intimate moment in the Tenderness Figurine by Willow Tree®. As in many of her pieces portraying parents and children, artist Susan Lordi has captured a moment in time with this work that every mother can relate to.
Raising a child is an experience full of "firsts." First words. First steps. And then there's the moment when a child truly becomes an individual. Artist Susan Lordi captures a moment shared by a mother and child as the transition from "baby" to "person" really begins.
As she puts it, “I tried to capture a quiet moment in time, since they are so rare when you have a young child. At that age, about 18 months — they're their own little person — with a defined personality separate from your own. This is one rare and tender moment together — in sync with each other.”
Like all Willow Tree figurines, Tenderness is reproduced in resin from original sculpts by Susan Lordi. The pieces are meticulously detailed, reproducing every knife mark in the original. Each piece is then hand-painted with lead-free paint and only released after meeting exacting quality control standards.
