What a seemingly perfect piece for our beloved son's educational assistant leaving. We picked this piece for her before reading about the puzzle piece etchings and their representation of autism, which our son has. Rather we picked it for the characteristics of the boy, his profound love for nature and to protect the sprout, symbolizing both a new beginning for his EA leaving and the representation of the growth within our son from her hard work. Truly why we love Willow Tree so much is that it is a presentation of so many bigger things around us.
My son picked this piece for my Mother, his Grandmother during a critical hospital stay. She has grown many things from seed with him through the years and also planted seeds of strength, knowledge and respect in him. It was a perfect piece to remind her of their bond during a difficult time in ICU where flowers were not a choice, but this lasting gift was.
This is the latest edition to my collection. Bought for me for Mother's Day, it has special meaning to me because our youngest son is disabled and has special needs...he is my 'something special'
It's inpiring for Susan to hear how you feel about your Willow Tree piece. Your personal interpretation is so meaningful... thank you for taking the time to share it.
