African Tribal Headrest from Konso or Xonsita Tribe of Shankila, Ethiopia

About

An African tribal headrest carved out of one section of wood from the Konso Tribe in Shankila, Ethiopia. The Konso, also known as the Xonsita, are a Lowland East Cushitic-speaking ethnic group primarily inhabiting south-central Ethiopia. This is an artifact that was used by a member of the tribe (and not made for the tourist market). It has a dark coffee-color with the rich patina of age. Measures: 10 1/4" wide x 4 1/4" deep x 6 1/2" high.
