Free spirit - Willow Tree figur"Dancing through life with laughter"
Susan Lordi sier om denne figuren: "This is a happiness piece — movement and dancing connote freedom and joy of life. A lot of little girls go through a ‘high twirl’ stage — when every one of them wants to be a princess or a ballerina — when they seem to float and dance rather than walk. This demonstrative gesture might capture that time. Or, this figure might reflect elements of an adult’s personality — someone we would call a ‘free spirit’. I see the word Spirit as a sense of self and free will, enthusiasm and energy; as having an upbeat frame of mind. Someone who is enjoyable and wonderful to be around due to her attitude toward life. This would be a nice gift for someone entering a new phase of life, such as after retirement or divorce… I hope the piece will universally express joy, freedom and happiness at any age."
