Reserve heads were used during the Old Kingdom, as a magical place to hold the Ka of the deceased should anything happen to the body. In Egyptian religion it was believed that if anything happened to the body of the deceased then they would cease to exist in the afterlife. A reserve head was used to ensure against such a fate.

"It may not be possible to travel backward in time, but perhaps one day we can bring the past to us. Here’s a moment from my past. Like John Herschel, I’m remembering a younger version of myself: December 20th, 1975. A snowy day in Ithaca, New York. A branch point in the road that brought me to this moment with you… It was the day I met Carl Sagan. Reminds me of those ghost stars in the sky. You know, the ones that still shine their light upon us, long after they’re gone.”

—Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos Ep. 4
