Both the god Ra and the pharaohs wore a threateningly erect cobra on their foreheads as protection against enemies. This symbol, which is also called the Uraeus Snkke, was the flaming eye of the god which destroyed enemies through the power of fire.
The cobra was also considered to be a symbol of the godess Buto. She was worshipped in the prehistoric kingdom of Buto where she settled onto the head of the king in the form of the Uraeus.
In the texts of the Egyptian Book of the Dead the snake's ability to become young and to be reborn each day is also mentioned which, in turn, gives rise to associations with the sun disc.
It is the symbol of renewal. There is an Ancient Egyptian saying - 'I am a snake with many years; I go through the night and am born again every day. I am a snake to the ends of the earth. I go through the night and am born again renewed and rejuvenated day after day'.
