Female Moor's head with rich decoration, pommels and details in platinum, in Sicilian artistic ceramic, made and painted by hand by the master potters of Caltagirone.

It stands out for the richness and originality of its decoration, for the beauty of the face and the details, combined with the brilliance of the colors and the velvety luminosity of the ceramic.

My emotion:

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 some succulent plants that came out of red terracotta, in the shape of a Moor'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.
