The Weighing of the Heart
Horus oversees the weighing of the heart.
The heart of the deceased is being weighed against Ma’at by Anubis.
Ma’at represents Truth & Justice.
She is sometimes represented by her symbol the feather.
If the scales balance all is well & the deceased continues on to meet Osiris.
If the heart weighs heavy the deceased is devoured by the ever-waiting beast, Ammit.
