CHAP 2: Egyptian: I have seen a Palanquin like this a wedding last year! It was so old school lol. A Bridal Palanquin (or palanquin) is a carrying chair. It is tradition to carry women in weddings, but they have been found in several tombs. This one is not, but these chairs can be mounted on poles so that they can be carried.
The word mikoshi can be written in two ways as 御輿 (honorable palanquin) or 神輿 (the gods’ palanquin). It’s an ornate palanquin that’s carried on long poles. It usually has a gilded phoenix on top, and it contains a symbol or emblem of the shrine deity. The shrine’s priests ask the kami (gods) to enter the mikoshi, and then the mikoshi is carried around the neighbourhood so that the kami can share their goodwill with all homes and businesses.
