Tonga Island, South Pacific, Polynesia

Wooden neckrest with rectangular base and top with a perforated central section. The contours are punctuated by incised cups, as is the reverse of the plate. The latter is slightly thickened and curved at its ends.
Neckrests are used as a headrest so as not to distort elaborate hairstyles but also to prevent the head, considered sacred, from touching the ground.
