An impressive pair of busts of Moors carved in polychromy marble as from the Venetian school with the use of important and specimen marbles. Modelled as a male and female maybe a couple of notable moors merchant, active and usual at Venice when the city became a flourishing trade center between Western Europe and the rest of the world—especially with the Byzantine Empire and Asia), where its navy protected sea routes against piracy.
