The Willow Tree Nativity Ox and Goat, #26180, measures 3.5" high. Each beautifully hand-carved sculpture is cast from Artist Susan Lordi’s original carving and is painted by hand. The Ox and the Goat joined the Nativity in 2008.
Ox And Goat for the Nativity - Offering warmth and protection
Ox and Goat were carved to complement the classic Nativity collection.
Two new animals join the classic Nativity, surrounding the holy family with warmth and protection.
Using family and friends as models, Susan Lordi 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 Lordi 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.”
