TITLE: Love my Cat (dark) SENTIMENT: Always with me, full of personality! GIFT-GIVING SUGGESTIONS: Pets join the Willow Tree family! Dog and Cat figures work well with other family pieces to create Family Groupings. Hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only… a tilt of the head, a turn of the body. Willow Tree is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch. 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.
