Egyptian Crowns & headdresses
Crowns and headdresses were mostly made of organic materials and have not survived but we know what they looked like from many pictures and statues.
The best known crown is from Tutankhamun’s golden death mask.
This was called the Nemes crown (shown above) and was made of striped cloth.
It was tied around the head, covered the neck and shoulders, and was knotted into a tail at the back. The brow was decorated with the “uraeus,” a cobra and vulture.
