Egyptian Furniture Pt. 2

This is Queen Hetepheres chair; built of wood and encased in gold. Was discovered in 1925 by a photographer. Queen Hetepheres title was "Mother of the King of Upper and Lower Egypt", her son was Pharaoh Khufu.

The legs once again are reminiscent of a feline on all 4`s. The arms are high and have a design of flowers/ papyrus bundled.

Another furniture found in her pyramid was a bed. This is encased in gold just like the chair. The board at the bottom is the foot rest and the pillow is at the top which is elevated quite high!
