You mean the crook as in the Crook and Flail? Well the Crook is suppose to be a shepards crook symbolizing the power of the King as "shepard of the people", guardian and provider for Egypt and such...

Hi Guest, i am sorry that this information comes to late for you. However, perhaps others with the same need maybe helped by it.

Source: Early Dynastic Egypt, by Toby A.H. Wilkinson pgs 188- 189.

The crook is actually called in Egyptian the HEQA sceptre, or spelled in modern Egyptian hq3 (with a dot under the h). It is the oldest attested (known for sure) sceptre in Egyptian history. Dating back into the Prehistoric times. The earliest example of the HEQA, ( hq3, with a dot under the h) comes from the U-547 tomb at Abydos, dating from the late Naqada II (d) period (appox. 32,00 BCE). The earliest surviving complete HEQA (hq3, dot under the h) sceptre comes from the same period, in the same cemetery, from the tomb U-j. This sceptre was made of ivory but they could be made of any material Pharaoh wanted..

The earliest representation of a king holding a HEQA sceptre, (hq3, dot under the h) is a small statuette of Ninetjer. He is holding it as the Pharaohs in much later times held it. Ninetjer (3rd Pharaoh of the 2nd Dynasty c.2750 BCE) holds it across his chest, balancing the flail, upon it, that is held in his other hand.

Ankhesenpa-aten is right in her understanding of the "crook's" purpose and symbolism there is no need for me to repeat her.

The U-j tomb is considered possibly to be the burial site of King Scorpion. Mr. Wilkinson's book doesn't fully agree, however it is some 5 years old and new data suggests that tomb U-j may in fact be Scorpion's tomb.
