Itís Never Too Late to Show Your Love with Expressive Figurative Sculptures
Posted by willowtree on February 18th, 2020
While Valentine’s Day is over, it’s never too late to show your love for your partner, a sibling, your parents, or your close friends. A gift can show them how you feel any time of the year. Here are a few ideas for gifts for the important people in your life to show them how you feel.
The Love of a Partner
While you probably exchanged gifts or a dinner with your significant other on Valentine’s Day, you can surprise them with an expression of your love at any time. They will love the surprise. Consider something that depicts the love you feel for your partner, such as a figurative sculpture of a man holding a woman from behind, holding her hand while she cradles his head. It’s a tender moment shared between two lovers and the perfect way to show your partner how you feel. Another option is a pair of figures, a man sitting on a block with a woman holding him from behind. One of her hands rests on his shoulder, while the other is clasped by his hand. Relaxed and casual, it represents a couple navigating life together and an appreciation for the little things.
The Trust of a Sibling
The bond that forms between siblings is something that should be celebrated often. A figurative sculpture of two sisters sitting together, holding hands and arms around each other, speaks to a lifelong friendship that can only happen between siblings. For brothers, an older brother holding a younger brother, with the younger brother looking up at his older brother, speaks to forging a bond that lasts a lifetime. Looking for a brother and sister? Try a figure with both sitting on a rock, side by side, a consistent, supportive presence in each other’s lives.
The Bond Between Parents and Children
Any time of year is a good time to show your love for your mom and dad and thank them for raising you into the person you are today. A figurative sculpture of a mother holding a daughter close expresses a close connection, yet also freedom. A mother holding her son’s head, the son acting nonchalant, expresses a push and pull of the relationship that develops between a mother and child. By the same token, a figurative sculpture of a father sitting next to a daughter celebrates the bond of father and daughter. A son draping himself over a sitting father shows the strong base of trust and love between the two in a sculpture. Or, get your parents something for their Christmas tree, like figurine ornaments. A woman holding hearts expresses the love and care that is shared with parents and children and is perfect for the tree.
A Friendship of Love and Encouragement
Whether it’s two women holding hands as they walk and talk or a child holding flowers, you can represent the love between friends with a figurative sculpture, just like for members of your family. Friendship is, after all, the sweetest gift you can give.
About Willow Tree®
Artist Susan Lordi’s Willow Tree® figures represent the relationships and strong bonds forged between us and our family, friends, and pets. The aim of the intimate line of artwork is to comfort and inspire, leaving the interpretation of each piece up to the giver and recipient. The pieces are cast from Susan Lordi’s original handcrafted carvings, made in her Kansas City, Missouri studio. Each piece is then painted by hand. Simplicity of form makes Susan Lordi’s signature Willow Tree® sculptures easy to recognize, and gestures such as a tilt of the head, a turn of the body, or a placement of the hands reveal emotion instead of facial features.
