"Objects among the Zulu were personal. Some were made expressly for their owners, and would become, in time, closely linked with that person's identity by association and a lifetime's use. A headrest, for example, may have been brought by a bride from her parent's homestead as a betrothal gift to her husband's homestead. The headrest would be regarded as a link to her father's spirit and the amadlozi, her forebears' spirits." - Karl Nel, The Art of Southeast Africa
