35 Wooden headrest

Ethiopia, Me’en
First half of the twentieth century or later

The form of this headrest is similar to the last. The copper handle of this example survives. The side of the base and the support are decorated with respectively two parallel pins, and two vertical aluminium pins, and the edge of the platform has a single row of closely set aluminium pins with a further line from front to back. There are also two rows of short vertical incisions on the front.
