Mata e Grifone in the garden h16 - Ottanio Marettimo
Mata and Grifone in Giardino are an expression of that skill that only the ceramics of Caltagirone are able to express. Inspired by the citrus gardens of Sicilian villas and embraced by a sumptuous citrus crown, the turbans of Mata and Grifone become an exercise of plasticity and royalty. Citrus fruits and leaves follow each other in a circle, decorating our Moors with the most beautiful crown possible. Crita's moorish heads, as always, are colored with highly sought-after and innovative colors. Colors of Sicily that have the most contemporary vision of tones capable of making a home magical.
Our family of Moor's heads is growing: here is Mata and Grifone in Giardino.
Our couple of Moor's heads from Caltagirone was born from a legend that speaks of an unrequited love that finally blossomed in Messina between a beautiful girl named Marta, Mata in dialect, and Grifone, a very tall Saracen soldier, dedicated to piracy.
It is thanks to love that Grifone changed his life by renouncing raids and becoming a man that Mata could love. Finally, from this love many children were born and tradition has it that our characters are the progenitors of the inhabitants of Messina.
Crita continues its journey in the gardens of Sicily bringing Mata and Grifone in Giardino to the stage. Lush and fragrant gardens that for centuries have surrounded the villas of delights that dot our island. Gardens that smell of oranges, lemons and sensual loves consumed among the evergreen leaves of these trees, which have always been a source of delight and beauty.
Topped with an elegant citrus crown, Mata and Grifone's turbans become even richer and royalty. Two Moor's heads made of beauty and nature that only Caltagirone ceramics are able to achieve.
Citrus fruits embrace each other with leaves and circle our sultans, praying them with the most beautiful crown possible.
Mata and Grifone in Giardino are, as always happens with the Crita collections, entirely handmade in Caltagirone. The Crita style, pure and elegant, is imprinted on these new Moor's heads from Caltagirone, which we thought are perfect as crockery holders, pen holders and obviously flower holders.
As always, the colors we have chosen are highly sought after and innovative. The colors of our Moors know the colors of Sicily and have the most contemporary vision of tones capable of making a home magical.
Our Mata and Grrifone in Giardino are now ready. From the gardens of Sicily to your home it will be a very short journey.
