FEMALE MOOR’S HEAD ORANGE AND POMEGRANITE – 33 CM
The roots of our “I Carusi” collection lie in the ancient legend of the Moor’s heads, which we have revisited with a modern twist to create truly unique pieces.
The bright colours, elegant lineaments and sculptural form of our Moor’s heads distinguish these wonderful pieces of art.
The voluminous turbans are transformed into masterpieces of Sicilian art, our hand-painted decorations covering the Moor’s heads with citrus fruits, leaves, pomegranates, and other ornamentation and rendering them absolutely unique.
Moor’s Heads undergo two kiln firings.
The first is at a temperature of around 980°C and lasts for 36 hours.
Once this first firing is complete, the heads are cooled and then immersed in tanks containing the glaze which gives them their characteristic brightly-coloured appearance.
When the glaze has dried, they undergo a second firing for 36 hours, this time at a temperature of around 920°C.

CARING FOR YOUR MOOR’S HEAD
To clean the Moor’s heads, use a damp, soft, non-abrasive cloth and avoid the use of chemical detergents which may damage the enamel.
The Moor’s heads should be handled gently and care should be taken not to drop them and to avoid any impact with hard surfaces, as even the slightest impact may chip the product.
