Dinka neck support (N° 14971)

This object, whose stability is provided by three feet in a slight oblique, and whose ends of the oblong tray curve gracefully, was intended to preserve the complex headdress of its owner. A prestigious object of the nomads also used as a stool, it also affirmed their social status. The ends feature sylized elephant heads, or horns. Featuring a sturdy braided leather conveyor belt, it features decorative accessories in the form of hair stamps.
Glosspatine glossy black brown, braided leather strap, animal hair pom pompoms. Little information has been gathered about this animist people of southern Sudan. Some of these East African tribes were virtually wiped out by the inter-tribal wars and the Islamic slave trade.
