Gracefully arched; an ancient Egyptian temple pillar wrapped around by the two sisters Wadjet and Nekhbet, who served as tutelary deities of Lower and Upper Egypt respectively, symbolising the essential duality of the Egyptian world.
A stunning piece that would make the ideal gift for the person who has everything.
Wadjet; usually portrayed as a rearing cobra, she was thus inextricably linked with the uraeus, the archetypal serpent-image of kingship, which protruded just above the forehead in most royal crowns and headdresses. It has been suggested that the original meaning of the Greek word uraeus may have been ‘she who rears up.’
Wadjet and the vulture goddess Nekhbet were described as the nebty (‘two ladies’), who served as tutelary deities of Lower and Upper Egypt respectively, symbolising the essential duality of the Egyptian world. Together they presided over one of the elements of the Royal Titulary, the ‘two ladies’ name, which is attested as early as the 1st Dynasty.
