I loved seeing his furniture, from the detailed beds with animal heads, to the chairs with faces, and since that time the bed of this little king is adjustable, and has been used in expeditions or wars or camping, which is divided into three sections which are installed together to obtain the large bed, and contains supports in each of its corners, and movable bronze joints, and the legs on which it rested were designed in the shape of lion’s paws, and the surface of the bed was made of carpets and linen, And it contained strong hinges to help it fold easily..
