Headrest Dinka Sudan - SOLD OUT

Neckrests in traditional East African art

There is little figurative art in East Africa because of the Islamization of the region. The sculptors have therefore designed everyday objects very famous for their variety and their sober and contemporary look, especially the neckrests and headrests.

This one, in light wood, consists of a curved seat supported by three feet. At the ends of the seat are animal representations. Small brass nails decorate the room.

Authentic African object proposed by our art gallery at a price lower than the estimate established by the experts.
