Ancient Egyptian Headrest

The headrest was made of wood and was used as a type of pillow. Some were plain and some beautifully carved. They do not look very comfortable because the padding is missing from the part that touches your head. The headrest had a curved upper part joined with a rectangular piece. Headrests were also used to support the heads of the dead to keep evil spirits from entering from the ground, into the body.
