Carved from wood, the Nyangatom headrest is crafted with a practical and elegant design. It typically consists of a curved base and a smooth, flat top that supports the head comfortably. Used traditionally to preserve intricate hairstyles and provide comfort during rest, these headrests are integral to the Nyangatom culture. The Nyangatom people, known for their semi-nomadic lifestyle and skilled cattle herding in the remote regions of Ethiopia and South Sudan, cherish these headrests as both functional tools and cultural artifacts that signify their heritage and identity.
