66 Sitting as a Privilege

Folding Chair
Daensen Burial Mound

This reconstruction shows the exact function and position of the original fittings of the folding chair from the chief's grave at Daensen. Such chairs were reserved for princes and chiefs and had the same function as later thrones. The use of gold plate for the decorative fittings confirms the high rank of its owner. A comparable folding armchair comes from the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
