African combs date back to the 14th century.  They were predominantly made from wood but some examples can also be found made from ivory, bone and other natural materials.  Each part of the comb has significant meaning, displaying tribal affiliation and standing as well as personal status and wealth.  Combs were even used as a sign of love for the receiver thereof.
