Willow Tree – The Holy Family 2pc Set
A child is born
In response to requests for a small-scale nativity, Susan created this intimate rendering, measuring 7.5″ tall.
This one-piece sculpture, painted with richly layered colors, is ideal for those with limited display space, or who wish to display a nativity year-round.
The expressive gestures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity, and portray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child.
Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph’s staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family.
Joseph’s left hand, positioned above the head of baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mary’s wrist.
This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection.
“This is a story from the past… but the overwhelming emotions of holding a new baby, starting a new family, and wanting to protect them forevermore are present today in every culture and every age.
My hope is that the gestures of Mary and Joseph will represent these powerful feelings of love and protection.” –Susan Lordi
