Couple of Moorish heads with satin black and pure gold finish, in Sicilian artistic ceramic. The heads are surmounted by a crown with pommels.
It stands out for its original finish, for the beauty of the faces and details, combined with the brilliance of pure gold.
They measure 50 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 red terracotta vases, in the shape of a Moro'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.
