Tsonga Headrest - South Africa

This stunning headrest features a single, central support, formally divided into four "feet." Simple in composition yet crafted with extreme regard to proportion, detail, and the precise distribution of mass and slenderness, this piece must be regarded as a masterpiece of Southern African headrests. A smooth, buttery patina provides a sensual finish to the whole.
