Description by the artist
In this work of mine, Sicily is seen as a Moor’s Head with a draped blue turban, with a knot on her forehead where above, in plain view, are typical Sicilian fruits, oranges, lemons, grapes and leaves. The gaze is unwavering, indicating an attentive woman observing life’s changes. Around the canvas, like a frame, is all the decoration typical of Sicilian carts. The colors are bright and the whole image is immersed in this white background like the particular light of this wonderful land.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture
By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation
The artwork is a concentrate of Sicily: typical fruit, the wheel of the Sicilian cart, the bright colors, the Moor’s head. All elements that can only recall the largest island in the Mediterranean.

"ART is ABSOLUTE FREEDOM...sublime MYSTERY that projects the ARTIST into that PRECIOUS WORLD...rich in EMOTIONS...called SOUL"
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.
