Headrest made of three pieces of noko noko wood (Casuarina equisetifolia). The bar is carved in a T-sectioned shape with slightly unturned and flared ends. Underneath the ends, the bar is carved into a half cylinder, which sits into a concave saddle cut into each of the arched shaped pairs of feet. These feet flare to take the form of a slightly oval concave cone.
