The neck support in African Baluba art

In African art, neck restraints were the property of Luba rulers and other high-ranking figures, who had sufficient financial resources to purchase them. These objects, which served as pillows, allowed them to rest their heads during the night. Classically, a female representation is kneeling and supports the curved seat with its arms and head.
