It is said that Maat's wings act as mirrors that reflect the moral state of her surroundings: white indicates righteousness, while black reveals hatred and wickedness. When her wings turn dark, she unleashes her powers of purification, eleminating any sources of evil. She never tires of her rigorous labors, as she stands for justice, truth and integrity.
Maat or Ma'at refers to the ancient Egyptian concepts of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also the goddess who personified these concepts, and regulated the stars, seasons, and the actions of mortals and the deities who had brought order from chaos at the moment of creation.
