"Pschent / Double Crown
(PA skent, pskent)
The pharaoh was "King of Upper and Lower Egypt."
This double kingship was expressed in the Pschent, the double crown combining
1. The Red Crown of Lower Egypt (Deshret) and
2. The White Crown of Upper Egypt (Hedjet).
The Red Crown of Lower Egypt, known as the deshret, was a round, flat-topped hat that extended down the back of the neck and had a tall section that
projected upward from the back side. From the base of the projection a thin reed curled up and forward, ending in a spiral.
The White Crown of Upper Egypt, known as the hedjet, was a white helmet that was shaped much like half a football with a stretched out, rounded end.
It also had a coiled uraeus, or sacred hooded cobra, just above the forehead."
