Description
Neck rest - Wood - Zulu - South Africa

This piece illustrates one of the rarest headrests of South Africa. These personal and intimate possessions were commissioned by young wives on the occasion of their nuptials, and would accompany the owner throughout his life.

The very lovely balance of forms is accentuated by the two circular feet.
