Variable of the Day, Ancient Egypt: Hedjet crown

Tomb of Khaemwaset (QV 44)

NOTE: The hedjet crown (often referred to as the White crown), was connected to Upper Egypt.  It occurs most commonly as white or yellow.  When paired with the deshret (the Red crown of Lower Egypt), they form the Dual crown known as the sehemty.
