NGONI
Headrest 6
16" long x 3.5" high x 3.25" deep
$150

This headrest was probably made to be sold.

This headrest is embellished with metal inserts that are filed flush with the surface.

In many African cultures, carved wooden "pillows" are used to support the head during sleep and in some instances to preserve a hairstyle.
