NGONI?
Headrest 8
16.75" long x 5.25" high x 4" wide
$200

This headrest was probably made to be sold

Different, with two heads and a slightly altered form, 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.
