Sheltering Animals for The Holy Family

Giving watch, warmth, protection

The Holy Family collection is ideal for those looking for a smaller nativity option. The 7.5”h figure is complemented by a backdrop of pierced curved metal, suggestive of twinkling stars. Four animals give watch, warmth and protection. (The Holy Fa mily figure and Shelter backdrop sold separately)

About this Piece

This four-piece set of animals was designed to specifically fit the small, intimate scale of The Holy Family. “The Sheltering Animals are proportional in scale to The Holy Family… smaller versions of other animals I’ve carved, with a few little tweaks in the details. I like that the gestures of their heads and ears express watchful attentiveness. My favorite is the goat – he shows his personality in his stance!” –Susan Lordi

Willow Tree® by Susan Lordi

Susan Lordi's artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she conceives, sculpts and carves each piece, always with a focus on gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
