Pair of satin-finished Moro's Heads, with blue and ocher yellow turban, in Sicilian artistic ceramic, entirely made and hand painted by master potters. The originality of the decoration stands out for its elegance, for the beauty of faces and details.

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.
