Angel of Freedom

Allowing dreams to soar
“Angel of Freedom holds a wire butterfly in her outstretched hands as a metaphor of freedom and independence, courage and confidence. This piece has a very open interpretation, and can fit a lot of different occasions. For graduates, for new careers, for a personality with a free spirit, for someone who loves nature and butterflies, in recognition of service to our country… in memory of a loved one.” —Susan Lordi
A gift for graduates or to celebrate life milestones and accomplishments.

Our Story
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.

    What i liked most about this Angel is that it portrays freedom and independence as something angelical! Someone who has a free and independent spirit may find comfort in that. Often these people are considered difficult or even thought of as selfish and not caring, and here comes this pretty little angel. I received this gift today from special people, my son and his wife. "Allowing dreams to soar" is more than welcome. At a time of my life when several things have been put "on hold and also lost," may this angel, through her Freedom & Liberty allow Dreams to Soar!

    My partner died a few months ago and my 6 year old daughter and I like to believe he is sending us butterflies to let us know he is with us, he was a very keen gardener and loved being outside, so the Angel of Freedom seemed so appropriate and was a lovely ornament to buy in memory of a man who is now free from this world. I love it.
