Fabulous pair of limited-edition, contemporary art Sicilian Moorheads of fine Sicilian workmanship.
The Moor heads are made entirely of lava stone: the male head is polished, while the female head is matted.
The Moor heads depict two heads of a man and a woman in typical Sicilian dress.
The man has a mustache and a stiffer crown characterized by hard lines, a fleshy mouth, and earrings. The neck is adorned with large seductive necklaces.
The woman, on the other hand, wears a more delicate and sinuous crown, reminiscent of a princess’ tiara, which supports the veil that covers the woman’s entire head. One ear is covered while the other sports a very impressive long earring, matching the necklace that encircles the woman’s neck.
The story of the Moor Heads is an ancient and dramatic one concerning two lovers, in fact to this day Moor Heads are almost always reproduced in pairs. Both, who hold a crown and a turban on their heads reminiscent of the Orient, are richly adorned with jewels, flowers and citrus fruits. Their charm has also struck a chord with fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who made them the stars of a striking collection in 2014.
Moorheads are perfect decor elements to enrich and embellish areas of the home.
