The Willow Tree® Nativity is the Holy Family Grouping Set #26005 consists of Mary with Baby Jesus, Joseph, Shepherd with White Lamb, Standing White Lamb, Sitting White Lamb, and Sitting Donkey. Each beautifully hand-carved sculpture is cast from Artist Susan Lordi’s original carving and is painted by hand. Joseph, the tallest piece in this grouping, measures 9.5”.
This Willow Tree Nativity grouping is subtitled "Behold the awe and wonder of the Christmas Story".
As enduring as the story it portrays, the six-piece Willow Tree Nativity is as loved today as when it was originally introduced in 2000. Its simplicity and form has made it a timeless classic. As a Christmas gift, wedding gift or self-purchase, the Willow Tree Nativity continues on as a family tradition.
Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time or express a feeling. “I want to create a pure form that speaks through gesture. Willow Tree isn’t so much about the tangible piece. It represents an emotion, or it marks a memory.” Susan goes on to say, “At times, it’s hard to find the right words to express what you want to say, and sometimes words aren’t necessary. I hope Willow Tree gives people a way to communicate emotion that goes beyond words. I try to keep the interpretation open. I hope this makes the sculptures more personal, and allows each viewer to decide what the piece is really about.”
