Patience, hours of work, the skills required to moisten and been the wood, and other other forms of expertise have been combined to produce this superb headrest. Carved in the shape of a vertical 'A'  from a single piece of wood, it combines vibrancy, style and rhythm. It's a triumph over nature and can only be owned by a "Ki-ruwok-in" , an Elder aged over 50, who is respected among the Pokot for his wisdom, wealth and possibly his divining abilities.
