Ma'at was the Goddess of Truth and Balance. She was considered a concept of truth and order, so she was thought to have come into existence at the moment of creation, having no creator for herself. She was involved in the ceremony of the Weighing of the Heart before Osiris (see Egyptian Mythology). She is shown with a feather on her head, the feather against which the heart of the deceased is weighed.
