Sculpture Engagement Gifts
By Willie Mae
When I first saw this piece it touch my heart so simple and strong it tells its own story a gift to my granddaughter for her birthday play plus she?s a newlywed a great gift
So sinuous in form, the curving wood delights the touch, the visual literally warms both hearts, including that of the giver. As a present for a couple who have been together for '31' years, he 20 years her senior. Their love a beautiful blend of honest & loving communication, respect, honor, adoration and joy. To honor what is always so obvious to all, when the two are together, this statuette made for a perfect partner gift. Years later, he has passed, but just last evening - after having had to downsize from a home to a small villa, with many pieces of art given away, I received a photo from she displaying this 'Heart Bond' upon a wall shelf; one of the treasures of her heart saved.
I bought this as a holiday gift for my husband several years ago because he's a retired triathlete and still a cyclist. He's impossible to buy gifts for and usually ends up returning anything I try to give him. The fact that such an intimate, sweet moment was so poignantly captured using metal and cycle parts was more than I could resist. This is the kind of piece that has motion to it--you feel looking at it that it's almost alive in some way. He was utterly delighted the moment he unwrapped it, and this darling this pair (in whom we see ourselves) has occupied the bar in our front room ever since, where we see them every day and every time we pass through, celebrate every holiday, birthday and anniversary, and are reminded of all the miles we've ridden bikes and all the years we've spent together (nearly two decades and counting). If I had just seen this item today, I would still purchase it in a heartbeat because it speaks to me every time I see it as if it were the first time.
