Pair of matt white and matt black Moor's heads in Sicilian artistic ceramic. They are made and hand painted by the master potters of Caltagirone. 

They measure 45 cm in height.

 

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 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 talk.
