Pair of ceramic Moor's Heads with Sicilian decoration in which the tones of bright red and copper green prevail. They are made and painted entirely by hand by the master potters of Caltagirone.

It stands out for the beauty of its faces and details, combined with the brilliance of colors and the velvety brightness of the ceramic.

It measures 35 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 succulent plants that came out of red terracotta pots, 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.
