42 Wooden headrest

Kenya or Sudan
First half of the twentieth century or later

Wooden headrest carved from a single piece of wood with three legs, two of which are at the front and strongly curved. The platform is uneven, curving towards the front, making the headrest more comfortable to use. On the underside of the platform is a narrow ridge linking two of the feet. The overall impression is that of an animal.
