“Kindness (Boy)” Figurine

Above all, kindness..

 

WillowTree Kindness Boy FigurineThis Willow Tree figurine, is a symbol of Kindness – represented by a boy bonding with his pet. As we and the world grows older & colder, we mustn’t forget about the virtue of kindness. It is easy to see the worst in people but the human condition has the potential for both great evil, and great good. One simple, small act of kindness towards someone with a negative outlook can be enough turn their life around – and they in turn may become motivated to do the same, causing a snowball effect of Kindness that this world desperately needs. We mustn’t forget the virtue of Kindness, and the power it holds.

“I really like the simplicity and truth of this sentiment, Above all, kindness. Kindness is a virtue that gives us so much reward, and one we aspire to. The animal that the child holds can be metaphorical (who better to teach us about kindness than animals?) or the figure can simply represent a loving relationship with a pet.” -Susan Lordi

Handpainted resin figurine adds charm to your home, communicating the feeling of being uplifted, of moving forward, in a celebration of a life. With her graceful pose and hand-carved look, she’s a thoughtful gift for expressing best wishes to special friends. Created from an original sculpture by Susan Lordi for Demdaco, figurine is about 5 1/2 ” tall and includes a sentiment on a gift card.©Susan Lordi
“The gesture of the figure and the bird communicates forward movement… being uplifted, moving onward; a release of hopes, dreams and spirit; of new beginnings and of endings; in celebration of a life… or in anticipation of a life together.

 

“This piece could be a way to express best wishes to someone who is taking a new path in life; on a road to recovery from illness or toward self-improvement… A hopeful symbol of peace for military families awaiting the return of their solders… An expression of sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one.”
“The sentiment refers to the song Turn, Turn, Turn, written by Pete Seeger in 1959, adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes. In the song, there’s a contrast in each example…‘A time to be born/die, plant/reap, laugh/weep’ and so on. I like the lyrical, repetitive nature of the phrasing.
