The family had bought this palang from a nearby village called Badiali a few years ago. Two of the turned wood legs extended to form the vertical members for the headrest of this palang. Two horizontal members were fixed to form the frame, of which the top member was carved. Spindles were previously fixed between the frame but had broken off over time.
