Crafted by the Dinka people of the Sudan, this headrest features carved teeth and angular sculpted details. It serves not only to preserve hairstyles during sleep but also as a conduit for communication with ancestors in Dinka social customs. According to tradition, dreams, believed to be messages from ancestors, are dreamt on headrests, amplifying their significance if inherited from a senior relative. Each headrest thus embodies cultural significance and ancestral connection within Dinka society.
