My eyes are glued looking at the hand carved willow tree figures upon browsing a site about collectible figurines. I can’t help admiring the beauty of these wooden carvings, the figures speaks for themselves. They are specially made of willow wood, best known for sculpture and other artworks like baskets and decorative accessories. The flexible feature of the wood made the artwork more splendid. They are formed and shaped through hand carving and individually painted by hand.
The figurines display identify and express emotions rendered in simple yet graceful pure gestures. It is also best for motif toppers on cakes in different occasions as the figurative sculptures conveys qualities and could suggest the theme of the event.
These art forms are perfect for a special gift too, for it beautifully exhibit feelings and sentiments that can heal wounds, bring closer relationships, treasure love and friendship and other emotions of a life well lived.
I personally would like to collect willow tree figures. Being in the family of collectors, I find willow tree figures valuable to add in the family’s set of collected works and memorabilia. The columnar design represents symbols for human virtues and qualities. The statuettes portray simplicity, tranquility and poise. The well designed models are carefully sculpted by hand to reveal forms through body gestures and the interpretation is left to the viewer to distinguish. Every figure connotes affection and inspiration done with a personal touch and elegance.
