Testa di Moro Vase Dress

85
VAT included (where applicable)
This poncho is a tribute to Sicily, its shapes and colors. the blue of its sea and the green of prickly pears. The drawing is inspired by the Sicilian artistic tradition of ceramic Moorish heads - a reminder of the ancient Moorish domination of the island - which here serve as a vase for the prickly pear, one of the symbols of Sicily. The details of the trimmings and the delicate lines of the watercolor paint make this poncho a small work of art on fabric.
