Scettri dei faraoni

Il faraone, nelle rappresentazioni ufficiali, è spesso ritratto nell’atto di stringere al petto il suo pastorale, lo scettro heka, e il flagello (nekhekh o nekhekhat) simboli di Osiride

Il simbolismo è evidente: il faraone è il pastore del suo popolo, lo protegge con il flagello e lo guida con il bastone.


Altri simboli della potenza del re erano lo scettro kherep, in origine una mazza dalla testa cilindrica che appariva come arma da combattimento


e il Khepesh che, nel Nuovo Regno venne consegnato da Amon al sovrano per premiare una vittoria.

Il termine scettro definiva molte insegne della potenza e della regalità divina.

Uas,il bastone che in alto recava una testa stilizzata di levriero, evocazione dell’animale sacro a Seth, era lo scettro a cui si appoggiavano gli dei.


Uadj, il gambo stilizzato di papiro, simile ad una colonna papiriforme, era lo scettro magico delle dee simboleggiante il vigore e l’eterna giovinezza.
