Section of a headrest
Wooden headrest. Top piece only. The top part may have been made more comfortable with the addition of cloth.
See Hallinckx, B.R. 2001 The symbolic assimilation of head and sun as expressed by headrests. In S.A.K.: 29-95 for information on the headrest symbolising the akhet sign and information on sleep.
