Archaeologists have discovered a pillow in a stone tomb in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality that is believed to date back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

The pillow, made of glazed pottery, is in the shape of a female body, said Niu Yingbin, a researcher with the municipality's cultural archaeological institution.

The pillow was found in a stone tomb that is believed to have belonged to someone with high social status and great wealth, said Niu.

The discovery will help archaeologists in their study of Ming Dynasty tomb design, he added.
