This wonderful object is a solid wood head and neck, held in place by a very solid structure of reeds. The cloth wrapping of the circular base suggests it might have been intended as a headdress. The crown is particularly nice, with grooves cut for the secure imbedding of the reeds. There are some cracks (now stable) on the head, the largest on the back and left side.
