Willow Tree Figurine A gift to express appreciation and thankfulness for teachers, volunteers, donors, caregivers, friends. "This piece is all about the apple. I wanted it to symbolise many things... to stand out, be large, delicious, shiny. Obviously, it's a symbol for teacher appreciation - but the apple is also just a beautiful fruit. A metaphor for good health, for wisdom, for someone chosen for something big... for a special person who always gives the best of her or himself, and makes a difference in the lives of others This figure includes a gift tag with the sentiment 'Thank you for making a difference'.
