Blackamoor is a type of figure in European decorative art from the Early Modern period, depicting a black person. Common examples of items and objects decorated in the blackamoor style include sculpture, jewellery, and furniture. Typically, the sculpted figure is seen carrying something in their hand. The term "blackamoor" or "black moor" was once a general term for black people in English "without depreciatory force" The style is now viewed by some as culturally insensitive. However, blackamoor pieces are still widely produced due to demand, mainly in Venice, Italy.
