TITLE: Song of Joy Musical TURNS & PLAYS: Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker: March SENTIMENT: Singing... Soaring! All in universal harmony GIFT-GIVING SUGGESTIONS: Musicals are sculpture in motion! Favorite pieces turning to music is a natural and exciting progression for Willow Tree®. Classic melodies are familiar and happily reminiscent. Musicals are meaningful gifts to celebrate weddings, new babies, birthdays, holiday. Willow Tree® hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Since 1999, American artist Susan Lordi has worked in partnership with DEMDACO to produce, market and distribute Willow Tree®, her line of carved figurative sculpture. From her studio in Kansas City, Lordi hand carves the original of each figure. This piece is cast from Lordi's original and painted by hand. Enclosed inside each fitted packaging box is a gift-giving card with piece title and sentiment on it. Each piece is intended to be open to interpretation from the viewer. "Willow Tree® isn't so much about the tangible piece. It represents an emotion or it marks a memory." -Susan Lordi Ready to display on a shelf, table or mantel. To clean, dust with soft brush or cloth. Avoid water or cleaning solvents.
