Willow Tree, Christmas Story

$110.00
  • Brand: Willow Tree
  • Designed by: Susan Lordi

SKU: 5591771

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.

The Christmas Story is the largest-scale nativity created by Susan Lordi. The figures are nearly 15” tall, and painted with richly layered colors. The elegant movement of Mary’s and Joseph’s garments, and their protective gestures bring this composition to the highest levels of sculptural art. The pieces relate to each other when placed on the base of Sanctuary. Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph’s staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph’s left hand, positioned above the head of baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mary’s wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection. 2 Piece set includes Mary holding baby Jesus and Joseph. Joseph is 14.5" tall. Companion pieces are The Christmas Story Sanctuary and Gentle Animals of the Stable
