Pair of Moor's Heads, with particular aged finish and details in pure gold. They are entirely made and executed by hand, in Sicilian artistic ceramic.

They stand out for the beauty of their faces and details, combined with the brilliance of pure gold and the silkiness of ceramic.

They measure 20 cm in height.

My emotion:

As a child, in the garden of my uncles' house in Palermo, to adorn the entrance to the avenue covered with grape pergolas, there were succulents 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 talk.
