The Dancer Willow Tree ® Figurine by Susan Lordi.
Creative expression comes from within
The Dancer is about creativity. The sentiment refers to the fact that everything we create starts with a little idea — and a many times we get these ideas in quiet moments of inner reflection. We are quick to reward action and work — the process of doing. But a lot of creativity sparks from seemingly inactive moments, so it is important to daydream, imagine, and get excited about possibilities. It's about giving yourself permission to quietly sit and think — these moments are to be valued. This piece celebrates creativity, in all its shapes and forms. The Dancer is unique in Willow Tree in that she is not hidden in a dress. I chose Body Movement as a universal expression of creativity because modern dance and ballet is what I watch to be inspired. It is sculpture in motion. I think it is one of the most beautiful ways of using the body to express emotion.
