Ancient bed of Egyptian Queen HetepheresDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Ancient bed of Egyptian Queen Hetepheres

Description: An Ancient bed that was found at the tomb of Egyptian Queen Hetepheres near the Great Pyramid of Giza. American archaeologist and Egyptologist, George Andrew Reisner (1867-942) found the tomb and furniture in 1925.

Study Application Notes: Queen Hetepheres I was the wife of Pharaoh Snefru and the mother of Pharaoh Khufu. This gold-covered bed with gold headrest was presented by Snefru, the first king of the 4th dynasty (2613-2589 B.C.). Approximately 70 inches in length, it is the earliest-known example of this type of sleeping furniture and one of the most well-preserved. The original presently resides in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This replica resides in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.

Background Information: Hetepheres' sarcophagus and funerary furniture were discovered in 1925 near the satellite pyramids of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Although Hetepheres' mummy was missing from the tomb, the canopic jars and other items are among the oldest known examples. The contents of the tomb provide many details of the ways of life of the Fourth Egyptian Dynasty.
