Description:

These are of Ethiopian origin and were used to enable people sleep without interfering with their complicated coiffure. Hairstyles frequently declare their owner's age, gender, rank or status and often empowered by accoutrements or charms of magical-religious nature. They then become signs, symbols and potent empowering devices that must be protected.
