Willow Tree, Christmas Story Sanctuary
- Brand: Willow Tree
- Designed by: Susan Lordi
Each original Willow Tree® sculpture is hand carved by artist Susan Lordi. Using family and friends as models, Susan’s goal is to capture a moment in time or express an intimate feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carving and individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature add depth and sentimentality to this beloved line.
Sanctuary soars to 24" tall, creating a majestic presence for the two-figure set of The Christmas Story. The base is large enough to accommodate Gentle Animals of the Stable, forming a complete display. The design of Sanctuary is based on historical architecture. Its gothic arches symbolize protective havens in which people throughout the ages have gathered to seek inspiration and hope. The two sides and center panel form a ‘triptych’ — traditionally, a work of art in three panels. The pieces are constructed of wood, hand-painted and sanded for a distinctive finish. Rusted nail holes provide a decorative linear element, and are metaphors foretelling the crucifixion.
