"The king shown here wears the most characteristic form of the royal regalia: a striped fabric head cover (nemes) that was probably supported by a lightweight framework. Its two lappets lie on each side of the chest, and the back was gathered into a tail along the spine. Colored representations show that the nemes was striped blue and gold, as is the example on the colossal statue of Tutankhamun exhibited" on this page and this page.
