Demon-fighting hybrid!

Ancient Egyptian headrests could be decorated with fierce demonic monsters, protecting the vulnerable sleeper from demons that appear as nightmares or cause other afflictions. This crocodile hybrid has snakes in his mouth, daggers on his feet, a spear and snake staff in one hand, while wielding a snake in the same pose as a pharaoh protecting his people.
