This lovely Willow Tree® Angel of Healing Figurine was one of the first creations in the Willow Tree line by artist Susan Lordi. In her own words: "This was the first piece that I sculpted in the summer of 1999. It came about intuitively, and so it was natural that the result ended up being very open to interpretation. The bird can be protection, comfort or healing. When I created it, I was thinking about the idea of fragility, and how we sometimes need to heal our inside—our soul. A bird is so fragile and vulnerable...a metaphor for our inner feelings. This piece helped define Willow Tree."
Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree sculpture. Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time, or express a feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and then individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature mark Susan's work.
