Winged Ma'at with Lower Egyptian papyrus cluster 

The Egyptian goddess representing truth, justice, order, and harmony in all aspects of the universe and human life. She was represented as a seated woman wearing a feather on her head, or as the feather alone. She was the daughter of Ra and was closely associated with the king in his role as maintainer of the cosmic order. She was especially revered at Memphis, Karnak, and Dayr al Madinah.
