Story

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. The saddle is often a dark color owing to butter used to soften and shape women's hair. They are important objects and often carried around and used to sit on during the day.
