Communicating friendship and a love of pets, this carved bas-relief hand-painted plaque can hang on a wall or be displayed on Plaque Stand (sold separately). “Quiet Strength represents the powerful relationship that a girl can develop with her horse. A horse is strength and freedom — a strong and calming presence. Our horse Diamond was an important part of our family for so many years. The time spent with him, for each of us, took us beyond ourselves and let us enjoy just being happy in the present.” –Susan Lordi

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.
