For over two decades, Lotus Arts de Vivre has been creating one of the most iconic pieces of jewellery, the Tête de Maure, also known as or mouros or morettos, which were the rage of Venetian high society since the 17th - 18th century as a result of an obsession with orientalism. Mouro Jewelry originated in medieval Venice when it was fashionable for high class Venetians to be followed by young boys, called Mouros dressed in extravagant jewels and fabulous costumes. Even when this practice stopped, people continued wearing jewelry depicting these gorgeous boys as good luck charms. Not only is a mouro a fine piece of jewellery that demands the highest skills of a master jeweller in the cutting, carving and setting of the stones and the wood, it is a piece of artistry in the elements of design and artistry, most notably the facial features that have to be beautiful and lifelike, much like this piece . This work of art has been painstakingly crafted in over 3 months by 10 craftsmen and designers involved in various stages of production.
