Couple of Moor's heads with black and pure gold decoration, they are made and hand painted by the master potters of Caltagirone.
They are distinguished by the richness and originality of the decoration, for the beauty of the faces and details, combined with the brilliance of the colors and the velvety luminosity of the ceramics.
They measure 17 cm in height
As a child, in the garden of my uncles' house in Palermo, to decorate the entrance to the avenue covered with grape pergolas, there were some succulent plants that came out of red terracotta, in the shape of a Moor's Head. Every time I passed by, I looked at them with a mixture of concern 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.
