In ancient China, pillows were thought to guide and influence a person’s dreams, which were important because they were believed to influence your waking life. The design, color, material, and shape of a pillow were all specially chosen and had significance. This beautiful porcelain pillow, made over a hundred years ago in Southern China, would require the sleeper to rest in a specific position considered to be better for the body.
