The Cultural and Spiritual Significance of Our Shona Wooden Headrest Collection 

The cultural significance of these headrests cannot be overstated. They represented wealth and prestige, with their detailed designs closely tied to political and religious leadership. The spiritual powers ascribed to these headrests were thought to invoke vivid dreams and protect their owners from nightmares - an essential quality for those holding high positions in society.



Our Shona wooden headrest collection is a testament to the craftsmanship and design prowess of the artisans who created them. Each piece is adorned with geometric patterns and motifs reflecting religious values and beliefs. Birds or crosses, for example, symbolize protection.

Rarity, Value, and Authenticity: Why Choose Our Shona Wooden Headrests


Today, these spiritual powers are still revered, and many people continue to use Shona headrests as talismans of good luck and protection. With deforestation and poaching in Zimbabwe, authentic pieces are becoming harder to find, making them even more precious to collectors. It's worth noting that Shona headrests are not exclusive to Zimbabwe, as similar headrests can be found in other regions of Africa. However, Zimbabwe is particularly renowned for its tradition of crafting these artifacts.



With that said, we understand the importance of authenticity and go the extra mile to ensure we offer genuine Shona wooden headrests. Our team carefully selects each piece to guarantee their authenticity.
