The “La Carassa” Moorish man costume is used in festivals, parades and holiday celebrations in Spain. Originally the heads were used as moving ornaments on church organs, that were operated by the organist. The eyes, mouth and tongue moved and candy would pour from the mouth of the head, on special occasions.
Moorish Tower in Castlewellan Park, in Northern Ireland. The land that the tower sits on belonged to Lord Annesley, the third largest landowner in the area. The Annesley family crest depicts two Moors and a European.
The doorway of the hexagonal shaped basement faces east.
The tower is in ruins but is currently being restored by the Follies Trust.
