The Sicilian Moor's heads, also commonly called "Moor's heads", are ceramic sculptures representing an African man with a turban on his head and a bearded face.

The origin of Moor heads dates back to the period of Arab domination of Sicily, which lasted from 827 to 1091. The Arabs brought with them a strong cultural influence, which was also reflected in the art and craftsmanship of the region.

It is said that Moor's heads were used as umbrella stands or ashtrays in Sicilian aristocratic homes during the period of Arab domination. However, as time passed, these sculptures became more and more popular and began to be used as simple decorative objects.

Over the centuries, Moor's heads have become a symbol of Sicilian culture, so much so that they are considered an icon of the island itself. Today, they can be found in many Sicilian homes, especially in coastal areas.
