Mother and Son
Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculptures representing sentiments of love, closeness, healing, courage, hope…all the emotions we encounter in life. “I was thinking about the relationship between a mother and a son of about nine or ten – that certain age when boys start fiercely asserting their independence – and resisting hugs and kisses from their mothers. And yet, at the same time, secretly needing and wanting them. I wanted this sculpture to express that push and pull. Liking the touch but at the same time, pulling away.” – Susan Lordi. The item is made in cast stone and hand-painted with lead-free paint. Supplied in a branded gift box and a gift tag with sentiment ‘Celebrating the bond of love between mothers and sons’. Not a toy or children’s product. Intended for adults only.
