I quickly researched the afnt head cloth for you and it automatically came up with the Egyptian Dreams site with your question held underneath, which leads me to ask you a question... what is a 'afnt' head cloth?

very well then..... the afnt was one of the royal head gear in ancient Egypt, similar to the nms and the khat headdress. it does, however, have a different shape.

hope this helps.

I knew afnt was some style of headdress worn by the Ancient Egyptians, I just couldn’t find any relevant sites which I believed would help you, though I went to one of my trusting websites and found a site which has information on various crowns (headdress’s), It also includes the afnet headdress which I think is the one you are looking for Wink

Hope this helps. Smile

I have also found an article on the khat headdress which is sometimes associated with the afnt.

Quote:
"... The afnet or khat is a type of headcloth which modem scholars often call a "bag wig." It is derived from the head coverings worn by winnowers in harvest scenes, or by mourners. It is affected not only by both kings and kings' chief wives, but also by goddesses, in particular Isis and Nephthys. However, in the latter instances there is no uraeus attached at the brow, although a symbol for the deity (a throne in the cases of Isis) is usually perched atop the headcloth. The use of the khat by royal women first appears during the Amarna period, and seems to be associated with their increased political and religious status. Unlike the nemes — strictly a king's headgear — it is not usual to see the khat in combination with other diadems. On the Karnak colossi of Akhenaten, the king wears the Double Crown directly atop his khat. At El Amarna Nefertiti is depicted with the hemhemet crown surmounting her afnet. ..."

(Just a test for the new scanner and OCR text program ... Cool )

Hey I was wondering about the headdresses worn for special occasions. I forget the name of it in english, there is a translation, which I forgot. It seemed to be a sort of headband or halo or turban, worn at the sixth of the month. Anyone know what it was?

Because seemingly neither you nor I know what you mean ... I can only refer to the already mentioned literature.
