Weekly Goddess: Ma'at

Art Found Here

The Goddess Ma'at, is the Egyptian Goddess of Justice. She is the personification of "truth," "balance," and the "cosmic order." She is represented as a woman with wings and a curved ostrich feather on her head. She holds a scepter in one hand and an ankh in the other. When the dead face judgment, their hearts are weighed against Ma'at's feather.
