A frieze is either a "frame / border" that involves a picture or "structure" that contains fragments and refers to a perception, imagination or idea. The Egyptian frieze is one of the most beautiful works of Egyptian civilization from the Early Dynastic Period until the end of the Late Period. The development of the imagination of the ancient Egyptian artist was inspired by his love of nature and his history and beliefs. He influenced the formation of different units, including the "friezes" in all fields of art, such as architecture or fine arts such as sculpture, engraving and drawing, or small arts such as jewelry and amulets. These models have reached far-reaching horizons of creativity and have influenced the arts of the ancient world. This research is concerned with Xkr "Kheker" frieze as one of the most famous friezes in Ancient Egypt .The study deals with determining the source from which the ancient Egyptian derived this shape of the eaves, identifying its types and tracking its evolution through the historical ages and sheds light through artistic description and analysis on any technical or religious implications that the Kheker may reveal.
