Willow Tree® Angels - Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)


What are the figures made of? Is it wood? Each Willow Tree® original figure (or prototype) is sculpted and hand carved by Susan Lordi using a special sculpting clay. The originals are then sent to the factory to be cast in resin that exactly captures each of her knife marks. The resin is cured, and each piece is individually hand-painted with lead-free paint.

What’s the best way to repair a broken Willow Tree® piece? The pieces are made of resin, which can break when dropped. Try a very minimal application of Epoxy (two-part Epoxy works best) along the site where the break occurred. That should give you enough time to maneuver the pieces into place before the Epoxy sets.

Can Willow Tree® Figures be displayed outdoors? No. The paint used on all Willow Tree® sculptures is water-based and applied in thin layers, so if exposed to weather, the paint may streak or wear off unevenly, and the color will eventually change and/or fade.

Would the Three Wisemen or Nativity Animals work with The Christmas Story? The Three Wisemen (item 26027-1), Shepherd and Stable Animals (item 26105-1) and Ox & Goat (item 26180) are designed for the classic Willow Tree®® 6-piece Nativity (item26005-1) and Crèche (item26106) . These pieces are designed on a much smaller scale than The Christmas Story (item 26173), and will look very odd if placed together. As companion to The Christmas Story, please look for Gentle Animals of the Stable (item 26206). This three-piece set of donkey and two sheep is perfectly proportioned for the larger-sized 14.5” figures. They fit on the base of the Sanctuary (item26174), surrounding the Holy Family, watching, warming and protecting.
