I live in Sicily and a classic symbol of this land is a “Testa di Moro” “Moor’s head”. I have painted this head by my imagination. It is my personal reinterpretation of this sicilian emblema where I used sicilian colours to ornate the subject. Moor's head is an element that is often found in Sicilian culture, finding its roots in the history of the island. The legend tells that, about a thousand years ago, when Sicily was under Arab rule, a young Moor fell in love with a woman from Palermo. of her It was love at first sight in fact it was enough for him to see her once to fall madly in love with her and decide to declare his love for her. The young woman, who used to spend a lot of time at home and loved to take care of her aromatic plants on her balcony, eagerly returned the attention of the young dark-haired man. After a short time, however, when the girl realized that her lover would soon return to Arabia, where a wife was already waiting for him, blinded by jealousy and mad at the idea that the young man could no longer be completely his. killed and cut off his head. The young Moor's head was then used by the girl to contain a basil plant that the girl grew on her balcony which she watered with her tears. At the sight of the luxuriant basil plant, the neighbors of the girl wanted to place something similar in their own homes. The artwork is send with certificate of authenticity and is ready to hang.
