King Tut is the most widely known Egyptian Pharaoh. His sarcophagus has several notable symbols. The cobra on his headdress represents Wadjet, the patron goddess of Lower Egypt. The vulture on his headdress represents Nekhbet, the patron goddess of Upper Egypt. Known as the "two ladies of the pharaoh" these two goddesses were his protectors. The staff and scepter (crook and flail) were symbols of kingship and can also be seen in images of the god Osiris, king of the underworld. The false beard on King Tut's mask was a symbol of the gods and represented his own divine status.
