Although this design may appear uncomfortable to us, the ancient Egyptians must have approved because the type was used for thousands of years from the First Dynasty (c. 3100 - 2890 B.C) through the Ptolemaic Period. It cupped the side of the face while one slept on their side. These headrests were taken to the tomb for use in the Other Life; mummies often lay within the coffin with the head resting on one.
AEA30970. Egyptian wooden head rest, cf. Petrie, Objects of Daily Use, p. 35, 33, Choice, 20.7 cm (8 1/8"), complete without repairs, cracks as expected for ancient wood objects of this size, made in three parts; SOLD
