Two Pop Art Inspired Hand-Painted Clay Sicilian Moro's Head Vases

About

It's an amazing pair of white clay Sicilian Moro's head vases, interpreted in a Pop Art style by a Sicilian painter and signed 1/1 MR on the base. There are no copies of these, they are uniques pieces. The legend of the Sicilian Moro's heads speaks of a noble Sicilian girl who lived a clandestine love with a young Arab, when this love was discovered by her family, both young lovers were beheaded. The heads were exposed on a balcony to warn others. For this reason, Moro's heads are made in pairs, in memory and in honour of the two murdered lovers.
