Willow Tree – Soar Figurine
a time to reflect, a time to soar
“The gesture of the figure and the bird communicates forward movement… being uplifted, moving onward; a release of hopes, dreams and spirit; of new beginnings and of endings; in celebration of a life… or in anticipation of a life together.
This piece could be a way to express best wishes to someone who is taking a new path in life; on a road to recovery from illness or toward self-improvement… A hopeful symbol of peace for military families awaiting the return of their solders…
An expression of sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one.
The sentiment refers to the song Turn, Turn, Turn, written by Pete Seeger in 1959, adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes.
In the song, there’s a contrast in each example…‘A time to be born/die, plant/reap, laugh/weep’ and so on.
I like the lyrical, repetitive nature of the phrasing. At significant milestones, we often pause and reflect before moving forward, so ‘a time to reflect, a time to soar’ seemed like a nice expression for this piece. —Susan Lordi
A gift for graduates or to celebrate special accomplishments… to encourage, support and acknowledge individual strength.
Sentiment: a time to reflect, a time to soar
