About Willow Tree Nativity
Willow Tree nativity figurines and ornaments are a prominent part of the range of sculptures originally hand carved by artist Susan Lordi. The pieces cast from those originals are then hand-painted in soft, usually neutral colours. Often they help to express key human qualities such as love, companionship or beauty. Their gestures are always simple, the stance natural, and the impression striking. This makes them particularly appropriate when used in nativity presentations or as Christmas decorations.
You can create an entire scene, such as the Three Wise Men, in different poses, each presenting their special gifts. You might be keen to highlight just one aspect of the nativity story, perhaps the infant being tended in the stable, or to simply present a lone piece, such as a shepherd with a single sheep, or the Holy Family, as a highlight of your Christmas table.
For a creation of the stable scene, a range of different animals, including oxen and goats can also be added. You can use other items, such as a crèche or a silhouetted tree, to provide a backdrop to the story you wish to tell. Willow Tree nativity figurines are created with a deliberate simplicity, yet complete elegance, to present a story of peace that?s both personal and powerful, and truly appropriate for its particular time of year. As a gift, they offer a great way of reminding friends or family that they are in your thoughts at this particular time of year.
