Uraeus wearing a solar disk

Representation of a standing female cobra, in its Uraeus form. The sculpture in bronze is covered with gilding and green and red glass paste. The cobra embodies the goddess Ouadjet, and the god Re linked to the sun. It indeed carries the solar disc enhanced with gilding symbolizing the rays. Gilding also embellishes the back and the center of the sculpture.
As an attribute of Pharaoh, he would wear the Uraeus at the front of his headdress.
This sculpture carries a ring at the back of the cobra's skull, allowing it to be attached.

The Uraeus is presented on a black lacquered base by Kichizô Inagaki (1876-1951)
