Ma'at was the goddess of truth and justice. She was featured as a woman with the feather of truth on her head and sometimes with wings. During the weighing of the heart ceremony the heart of the deceased was weighed against the feather of Ma'at to judge whether they had lead a rightous life. If the feather was lighter than the heart then the heart was fed to a beast and the spirit went to the underworld.
