Ma'at is the ancient Egyptian Goddess who personified physical and moral law, order and truth. She held a scepter in one hand, the ankh (the symbol of life) in the other, and wore a peacock feather on her head. It was when the world was created and chaos was eliminated that the principles of Ma'at were set in place.
