NGONI?
Headrest 7
17" long x 4" high x 3.5" deep
$200

This headrest was probably made to be sold.

Different, with two more defined heads and an incised design on the top, this headrest might not be Ngoni.

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