The pillow is carved from an oblong wood with concave cross-sections, carved human faces, human figures and jagged shaped patterns on the surface.

The Paiwan are adept at using natural materials to create various household utensils. Emotional elements considered important to tribesmen are also widely incorporated in the production of daily-use items. The expression of the interaction of people and materials, whether in the form of geometric shapes or representational patterns, adds a certain artistic flair to the Paiwan culture.(Text by Pai Lu Wu, translation by Chao Ling Kuo)
