‘Blackamoor figures are sculptures and other depictions of exotic figures, usually African males but sometimes other non-European. Used in European art in the Early Modern period. They occur in various media, often holding a tray or some other container, which was available for practical use. They occur in jewellery, armorial designs and decorative art…’
