This is a Vintage Beautiful Tribal Carved Wooden Headrest from the Gurage people of Ethiopia.This headrest is carved out of a single piece of wood. Ethiopian headrests come in various forms. They are ranged from the simple to an elaborately carved artifact. They have abstract shapes, nice lines, and are sometime decorated with sophisticated geometric patterns. Among these people headrests and stools play a vital role among men. These objects are carefully carved and carried by men everywhere they go. Headrests are used as pillows to help someone to have good deep sleep. They also used as a comfort to help protect ceremonial coiffure. In some occasions headrests are used as stool. This headrest is a personal object, and has become part of the individual. Usually, when the person dies, he is buried with his headrest. Sometimes the headrest is passed on to his heir, who would treat it with respect because this wooden piece embodies the spirit of the deceased person. This would be wonderful addition to your collection or a beautiful artifact for your home.
