Atef Crown

Atef Crown is the crown generally worn by the Egyptian deity Amen-Ra. It consisted chiefly of two upright ostrich feathers besides a tall white cap, with the ram's horns, urnei, and solar disk in front. It was supposed to represent the kingdom of Egypt, the white cap signifying light, the two feathers truth, the ursei serpents royalty, the ram's horns generative power, and the solar disk divinity. It is repeatedly mentioned in the Ritual of the Dead, and represented on the bass-reliefs, colossi, and statuettes.
