Something about ancient Egypt has always fascinated me. I have often had this feeling that I lived a life there. I have been fascinated with so many different aspects of the culture and architecture. Something else has fascinated me besides those things though. The Pharaohs.

In every picture depicting a Pharaoh, I have never seen one without a headdress. I have searched and I have wondered why? What are they hiding under those strange looking contraptions? They are not crowns obviously, but yet, the Pharaohs are the only ones I see wearing these things.

And where did the Pharaohs disappear too? I just think the whole dynastic existence went poof one day. Like they decided they did all they needed to do and took off.

I have seen some articles recently that suggest evidence they were of a dna not normal to this earthly existence. Maybe that is contrived, but it does seem strange that nowhere in any recorded history I have seen is there an actual pictograph or drawing, or statue that shows the Pharaohs of any period without their weird things on their head.

This obviously is not the only strange thing about ancient Egypt.

From what I recall there are two crowns. One represents upper Egypt the other lower Egypt. There was a pharaoh who united both upper and lower Egypt and from then on ward both crowns combined were worn. But I could be wrong.

Pretty sure that the ancient Roman empire saw the end of the Pharaohs rule.
They were not aliens. But I could be wrong.

No, it isn't very common to see them in artwork and statues as such. Some that exist expose a shaven head and the shape a result of head binding-more common than thought throughout in various ancient cultures.

Here are some from search:
Head binding
Armana princess

Akhenaton (Amenhotep IV)

What you'd see without the headdress for him-

King Tut facial reconstruction shares the shape of what the statue does above.

Because of fashion. It was the going thing. Like during the era of top hats. If you was somebody you wore a top hat…

As far as facial representation, stylized as it may or may not be…

I seem to remember watching a programme years ago about this,

and the general consensus was that Pharaohs are gods, if you put a mans face on them they become human, and gods are above human

As weirdguy said, Red Crown is for lower egypt (north to us), White is for Upper egypt (south to us), and the small Blue crown is for war, because both Seti I and Ramses II are depicted wearing it in battle.



Why are they always wearing their crowns? Cuz they're the f###in kings! Flaunt it!

[and for the record, the Pharaohs considered themselves living gods. Considering that they had power over life and death, harems, riches beyond belief, they were. This is why the illuminati use so much egyptian symbolism - they think of themselves as modern pharaohs, gods relative to us]

Upper egypt is like unto a bowling pin.




On the other hand one might think Pharoah would want to
flaunt his contemporary fashion fedish for the whole world to
see. Instead it's as if they were hiding something under the
pin. Would Pharoah find shame in the high fashion of the day?
So they bound their heads but hid the results away? IDK

all we have to explain it is the remaining "artwork" and mummies discovered underground in burial chambers, they apparently loved their 'hats' and probably had longer more coneshaped heads/skulls than we do today

I am not so sure head binding was the reason. Is it possible the head binding ritual was a result of emulation by others because the Pharaohs were of another species? Why would anyone bind their head on purpose? If you were ruled by a race with cone shaped spherical heads you might "try to be like Mike", but it is imitation where as the rulers were actually like that and this is why they did cover their heads, so that earthly beings would not be afraid.

Sure are some weird instances of ancient Egypt and how they are depicted in th hieroglyphs. too. Strange lights, ships, winged discs, the pyramids, the Sphinx, and very few logical explanations for any of it.

Then how come there were not more people wearing them? How come it is only the Pharaohs and their supposed posses that were close to them? There is no evidence of the Egyptian people wearing these things, at least none that I have seen.

Well as I said, they are weird and the reason why is not just as simple as they were kings.

They were not covering their faces, 99% of the time it was their heads.

I don't know if hiding is the word, rather they chose to not reveal.

That's funny, because the African tribes that used to practice head binding, did so because they believed it made the subject look more intelligent and intelligence is valuable. Did you research head binding at all ?

The simplest explanation is usually the right one.

My guess is that ordinary egyptians couldn't afford statues made of themselves. Just the wealthy elite. Ordinary poor people couldn't afford top hats, either.

Theres a history of a ton of weird fashionable dress from various vain and powerful peoples in history.

ETA: About wealth and power? Look at graveyards and head stones. The pyramids themselves are not but fancy grave stones. What egos they had, huh?

Nah, they just wanted to appear different, taller, better than everyone else. Look at the Catholic church. Their headdress is "Holier than thou".

yes, that and various military and secret society groups, other "aliens" of the past used headgear like astronaut helmets and such because the atmosphere might not have been the same as today
