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. These art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope—all the emotions of a life well lived.
Susan says of this figurine, "Somehow our pets sense—they just know—how we fee and totally accept us in whatever emotional or physical state we appear. They teach us about friendship and patience and inner peace. They support us with loyalty, softness, an independent spirit and expressive gaze. It is true that animals have a sixth sense. It is the sense of love, unconditionally."
