The Sunshade or Collapsible Canopy

Beginning in the Old Kingdom, high officials had their servants carry sunshades to protect the officials from the heat of the sun.

A sunshade consisted of a tall pole with a collapsible canopy, all in wood, that supported a fabric covering or a light wooden board.

The servant would adjust the canopy to shield the high official from the heat of the sun.
