Maat (also Ma'at) Personification of truth, justice and order. She is usually depicted as seen above, a woman wearing a feather upon her head. The hearts of the deceased were weighed against her feather at the Judgment. The heart of a 'Truth Speaker' would weigh the same as the feather of Maat and he/she would then be permitted to enter the Kingdom of Osiris. The deceased whose heart was heavier than the feather of Maat was devoured by Ammut. Maat and her consort Thoth are said to travel with Ra in his solar boat and direct its course.
