The moors were members of Muslim people of North Africa, of mixed Arab and Berber descent. In the 8th century they were converted to Islam and established power in North Africa, Sicily and Spain, where they established a civilization (756–1492).
THE LEGEND : 
During the Arab domination in Sicily, in Palermo city, there was an Arab Suburb called "La Kalsa".
In this small suburb was living a beautiful young lady who used to spend her time in taking care of the flowers on her balcony.
One day, a young moor was walking down the lady's balcony. He noticed the beauty of the lady and he truly fell in love with her.
He did not wait a minute to declare his love for her, and the beautiful young lady, impressed by the lover's boldness, started feeling the same love.
Unfortunately, the young moor was already married and was father of a few kids... as soon as the young lady found out that he would have left for going back to his family, she waited until the night and killed him while he was sleeping deeply. She cut his head and used it as a vase for her plants, so that she could have him forever by her side.
As the beauty of this vase was magnificent, all the neighborhood wanted to own a similar one.
From that moment, they decide to create ceramics moor heads as vases.
