In the center of the brow is a socket for the addition of a uraeus serpent, symbol of royalty, in another material.

art egyptien - Relief of Akhenaten as a sphinx (1349 B.C. - 1336 B.C.) ()

The association of royalty with the majestic and powerful lion can be traced back to the earliest periods. The human-headed lion, or sphinx, was also identified with aspects of the sun god. In this example, King Akhenaten crouches before a table of offerings. He presents cartouches, or oval rings, with the names of his solar god, the Aten. This god is represented by the sun's disk shedding its rays over the whole scene. Relief fragments similar to this one are in Hanover, Geneva and Brooklyn; a number of them were excavated at Akhenaten's own capital city of Akhet-aten (modern el-Amarna). They were found in place as doorjambs and suggest that this piece also served a similar purpose.

Mummy Case For A Cat (-696 -296) ()

Thousands of Egyptian cats were embalmed and presented as offerings to the goddesses Bastet and Pakhet. The mummies were often placed in costly, cat-shaped mummy cases like this one. The Egyptians believed that the “souls” of the goddesses took up residence in the desiccated animals. It was, accordingly, a good deed to offer a cat mummy to the goddesses.

Nekhet-kawi's Double Mummy Case (-2147 -2047) ()

The eyes on the outside of Nekhet-kawi’s mummy case were magic symbols of multiple aspects. In the first instance they restored the dead person’s sight, so that he or she could see out into the realm of the living. Secondly they were a protection from evil. Thirdly they symbolised the rebirth of the deceased into a new life.

The Stele of Roma the Doorkeeper, Dedicated of the Goddess Astarte (-1401 -1363) ()

The Egyptians almost never depicted illness. This instance is one of the exceptions. One of the man’s legs is withered and the foot only supports itself on the toes. It is the opinion of quite a number of doctors that these deformities are due to polio. This may be the world’s oldest representation of that disease.
