Sentiment " Rooted in the earth, reaching toward the sky", measures 16.5" and 13". A Willow Tree (R) sculpture by Susan Lordi. New to the Willow Tree in December 2017.
The artist shares her thoughts about this piece as follows" "I love the majestic yet simple form of the tall thin cypress trees abundant throughout the countryside of Europe. The spires seem to knit earth to sky, integrating landscape and atmosphere. I wanted to capture the elegant architecture of these trees, and create a visually uplifting form for the Nativity. " "The surfaces are carved with symbols of nature, representing life and renewal... pinpoints of gold leaf create light and movement."
