Wooden headrest (ekicholong) with leather strap.
Wooden Turkana headrest, or ekicholong. Ekicholong are well-known for their multi-functionality. In the past they were often used to protect elaborate hairstyles during sleep, but are today more commonly used as stools. They have also been documented as being used for protection as a parrying-shield in warfare against traditional Turkana fighting sticks. One stool is often used by the same person throughout their life.
