Splendid pair of Moor's Heads with stone effect, with details in pure gold and platinum. Perfect to be set in a contemporary decor.
They are made and hand painted by the master potters of Caltagirone.
They measure 45 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 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.
