These hand-sculpted wooden headrests are a beautiful piece of art with a meaningful history and a variety of uses.
While headrests were designed to serve a functional purpose--to support the head while sleeping to protect elaborate hairstyles--their intimate connection with their owners is such that they are also seen as precious vehicles for communicating with an ancestral realm. The design of such works is reflected in a range of regional styles. Shona sculptors and their neighbors to the southeast, the Tsonga, have been credited with the most varied formal solutions to the carving of the support element.
