33 Wooden headrest

Ethiopia, Oromo ?
First half of the twentieth century or later

Wooden headrest slanted towards the front and composed of an oblong base that is raised towards the centre. There are four plain supports of different widths; the outer supports lead to the platform, which has curved edges, one higher than the other, and a convex surface plane. There are faint decorative carvings at either end but these have worn over time.
