Pair of Moor's Heads in Sicilian artistic ceramic. They have a matte black face, an antique white turban, red knobs and pure gold details.
They stand out for the beauty of their faces and details, combined with the brilliance of pure gold and the silkiness of ceramic.
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.
