An object based on personal and public memories research about the fez hat and the material used to make it, because during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Egypt, members of the Palace and senior civil servants would wear the fez proudly and Schoolboys and university students were also forced required to wear the fez, that over time the tools of dominance become entrenched and still exert their force, even if the sources of power have died away.
