Maat was a teenage girl goddess who was often represented as a pair of twins. She was Truth and Order, Harmony and equilibrium, justice and supreme balance; the concept that the universe, above everything else is an ordered and rational place. Her domain encompasses predictability and regularity - constants. She is - paradoxically - the Goddess of Science, as well as integrity and honor. She stands at the entrance to the material plane. At the time of one's death, she will place their heart on her scales and weight it against a feather. If they balance, then that person may pass on to the afterlife in peace. If not, it means that the heart is heavy with evil, and the soul is devoured by the monstrous goddess Ahemait.

Maat (Mythologie)
In Egyptian mythology, Maàt was the goddess of truth, justice and order.

Note: Unlike other Egyptian gods and goddesses,
Maat is more of a concept than an actual deity.

In the underworld, Maats headband supplied the Feather of Truth, the ostrich feather which the souls of the deceased were weighed against in the Hall of Two Truths in Duat. A soul which was heavy with sin was devoured by Ammit. A good soul, one that weighed less, was sent to Osiris. Her symbol is a woman with wings and a feather on her head. The image is on some sarcophogi, as a symbol of protection for the souls of the dead.

Maat can also mean the concept of justice, truth and order. It was the pharaohs duty to ensure truth and justice. Pharaohs often were known as "Beloved of Maat."
