ETHIOPIAN, HEADRESTS, Ethiopia

In many African cultures, small wooden "pillows" are used to support the head during sleep and in some instances to preserve a hairstyle. In Ethiopia, the headrests come in several forms and relate to other intricate, but abstract works. This group is massive and solid, with an almost circular base tapering to a narrower curving top.
