A picciuttedda sicula

Paintings Acrylic on canvas
Single artwork


Description by the artist

Here is my Picciuttedda sicula (Sicilian for Young Sicilian lady). In this work I wanted to represent a female Moors head different from the traditional one, a doll with a turban full of very colorful fruit that recalls one of the symbols of the Sicilian artistic tradition.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

A concentration of Sicily in this work, given by the sea, the sky and the typical plants and fruits. But it is the color in general of the entire work of art that immediately recalls the largest island in the Mediterranean.

The Governance also suggests

The objective of the Governance is both to safeguard the traditions and ancient crafts of the people of Sicily, and to sustain economically the Artisans and the Artists, both the real ethno-anthropologists of the country.
