Cobra heads were popular amulets in ancient Egypt. These heads were carved from precious stones and worn as lucky charms. Cobra amulets also existed in the form of rings or integrated into cuffs and bracelets made of precious metal. The wearers of the amulets expected to be protects by fatal snake bites close to the Nile where real cobra abounded.
