The ancient Egyptian goddess of truth and order, whose symbol was the ostrich feather. She represented order, balance, correct attitudes and thinking, morality and justice. It was the feather of Maat against which the heart of the deceased was weighed. The power of Maat was said to regulate the seasons, the movement of the stars, and the relations between men and gods. It was central to the ideas about the universe and the Egyptians' code of ethics.
