Sentiment: 'By my side'; measures 5.5" high. A Willow Tree (R) sculpture by Susan Lordi. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each piece, capturing natural expression and emotion in each gesture. The artist herself writes of this piece, “The sentiment ‘By my side’ alludes to the shared background we have with our siblings; the unspoken support and consistent presence that we often take for granted when we are children, but grow to appreciate as we age. It could also imply that regardless of where our sibling is, he or she is truly always by our side."
