Actually, Pharaoh had several different crowns. The five we are most familiar with are here:

To read an introduction describing the different crowns worn, see here:

It can be a very fascinating study. There were so many, and (I'm sure) made of some strange materials. It's funny that more haven't been found--perhaps the crown was handed down in generations.


those sites are really good, nice find Osiris II Very Happy

In response to the first post here: There is a unique representation of a humanoid djed-pillar in a statue niche within a chapel at the Abydos Cenotaph Temple of Ramesses II. It is presumed to be the first djed-pillar of this kind, and led to the unusual djed-pillar depictions of the Late Period. The Osiris-djed-pillar in the original post could be a Late Period, Ptolemaic, or Roman Period version of Ramesses II's djed-pillar. It could even be a modern version.

You can see the humanoid djed-pillar from Ramesses II's temple in the follwing TourEgypt article (near to the bottom):
