Susan Lordi's Willow Tree® collection of angels, figurines and candles are rendered so as to suggest elegance, simplicity, peace and serenity. Forms reveal their expressions through body gestures only...a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Emotions and what they may symbolize are left to the individual to discern, which is what makes these pieces so personal and powerful.
Susan Lordi describes this piece as follows: "I carved this memorial in dedication to those who have suffered a loss in the service of others. I want to quietly honor the courage of the hero who has died, and the everyday courage of the hero who is left. This patriot's grief is to be honored as well. There are other figures in the marketplace about patriotism and honor, but I wanted to create one that acknowledged personal loss. Hero is a melancholy piece. I see it as very much a memorial. On a very personal level, keeping safe your memory is an intimate promise made to one who is gone ... I hope the gesture of her embrace reflects some of these ideas."
