A gift to celebrate the loving relationship that develops between parent and child. Part of the Willow Tree collection by Susan Lordi.
“I was thinking about the relationship between a mother and a son of about nine or ten — that certain age when boys start fiercely asserting their independence — and resisting hugs and kisses from their mothers. And yet, at the same time, secretly needing and wanting them. I wanted this sculpture to express that push and pull. Liking the touch but at the same time, pulling away.” —Susan Lordi
