|Function:||• Required to Access the City of Gold|
|Source:||Inside the Moai in Area 3.|
|Notes:||To acquire it, the Ankh must be obtained and the spelunker must kill himself near the Moai.|
To gain access to the Moai, you must die nearby  while you still have the Ankh in your inventory. The most reliable way of doing this is to simply commit suicide while standing on or next to the statue. Obviously, this destroys the Ankh but grants you access to the inside of the head, where the Hedjet lies in front of a secret exit.
It is not possible to acquire the Hedjet using the Teleporter to warp inside the statue, as the game considers the inside of the Moai to be solid. If you attempt to teleport in, you will die even if you land inside what is actually the hollow interior.
You cannot simply break into the statue using bombs or a Mattock either.
However, its primary role is to be used in conjunction with the Scepter dropped from the Mummy on level 13 to open the Golden Door to the City of Gold. Unlike the Sceptre, you may keep it even after advancing through the door.
The Hedjet, also known as the White Crown, was worn by the Pharaohs of Upper Egypt.
- ↑ When the Ankh is consumed, the game checks if the Moai exists on the level, to decide whether to put you back at the entrance (as happens on other levels) or inside the Moai (as happens here).
However, the check that it uses for the existence for the Moai actually acts as a sort of "proximity check" that doesn't work if the Moai is in the frozen region. Thus, killing yourself by throwing yourself to the bottom of the level sometimes works, but only if the Moai is close enough to the bottom of the level.
