Fascinating female Moor's Head in Sicilian artistic ceramic, with satin black face, antique white turban, richly decorated with pure gold.
It stands out for the beauty of its face 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 succulents 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 talk.
