The Uræus 


The Uræus represents an erected cobra (the position of the cobra when it is ready for attack a prey), that adorned the crowns of pharaohs and those of some Egyptian gods or goddesses.

The Uræus is always represented upright and swollen, ready to attack and spit its venom against enemies. It symbolizes destructive force, a weapon in the pharaoh's service to exterminate his enemies. The cobra also represents the goddess Wadjet of Lower Egypt, who protects the king and symbolizes the flood necessary for life. Actually, as many symbols of ancient Egypt, the Uræus thus has a dual function: destructive and protective.

In Egyptian mythology, Ra lost his left eye in his struggle with Set. However, Shu and Tefnut brought to Ra a new magical eye which has the function to transform itself in  Wadjet (able to afraid Set).
