Amaunet is an Egyptian mother goddess, also referred to as the Hidden One. She's the personification of the Northern Wind. She's know as "the mother who is father" and is therefore not in need of a husband. She is portrayed as a snake or a snake-head on which the crown of Lower Egypt rests.







Associated symbol of RA, a Snake circling the Sun





Portrayed as a cobra wearing a Red Crown of Lower Egypt, Wadjet was a symbol of soverignty.





She is uraeus on the Kings forehead, ready to spit venom or strike his ememies.




Buto, the Egyptian snake goddess. She was a cobra goddess
whose cult-center was in the Delta of the Nile. She was also called the "Lady of Heaven" and
the Queen of all the gods.





Renenutet (Renenet, Ernutet, Thermuthis, Thermouthis, Termuthis), "She Who Rears", was a cobra goddess




An Egyptian deity slays the snake-like Apep



In Egypt, we find the connection with an eagle and venomous snake partially confirmed by the very common picture of the winged sun-disk with uraeus
