This antique headrest is a small example of simple art. Carved in Hardwood, the tall pillar separates the platform of the headrest from the ground supposedly to keep the owner alert to the sounds of the night winds. The headrest also features a gentle groove in the middle of the legs which is accentuated by a handle made of leather.The curved platform has rounded edges and provides enough space to rest the head.
