Ancient Egyptian Crowns

THE ROYAL UREAUS CROWN
THE ROYAL URAEUS CROWN

This figure is seen wearing the Royal Uraeus Crown - also referred to as the sacred serpent crown. The Uraeus is a symbol of the Goddess Wadjet who was depicted in the form of a rearing cobra.

The head of a typical Egyptian figure is seen from the side, but the eye and body are seen from the front. Figures are usually shown wearing a traditional crown or headdress (nemes) and a pectoral decoration (menit) across the shoulders and chest.

The Egyptian Pharaohs wore different crowns for different occasions and to show their loyalty to certain gods associated with a crown.
