Description
Headrest, from wood, matt glossy brown patina. Small headrest consisting of a round half-spherical base, a stand with a leather strap and a narrow rest surface.

You can still detect the slight perfume smell of the hair oil.

The headrests act as a kind of pillow; additionally they protect the elaborate African hair-dos while identifying the owner with a particular clan or tribe.
