Couple of satin-finished Moorish heads, with multicolored turban, black face and bronzed gold details. They are in Sicilian artistic ceramics, entirely made and hand painted by master potters.
They stand out for the elegance and originality of the decoration, for the beauty of faces and details.
Measures 45 cm in height.
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.
