Splendid pair of Moor's Heads, white and pure gold, surmounted by pine cones, in Sicilian ceramic, made and hand painted by the master potters of Caltagirone.

They stand out for the beauty of their faces and details, combined with the brilliance of colors and the velvety luminosity of the ceramic.

Measure in height 55 cm

My emotion:

As a child, in the garden of my uncles' house in Palermo, adorning the entrance to the avenue covered with grape pergolas, there were succulent plants that came out of pots in red terracotta, in the shape of a Moor's Head.

Every time I passed by, I looked at them with a mixture of restlessness and fascination.

It seemed to me that a form of life had crystallized in those strange objects and that at any moment the Moor's Head could come alive and speak.
