Artist's Description

…that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all. (Emily Dickinson)

This image was inspired by the Goddess Ma’at (see here) as she is described in Tad Williams’ Otherland series.

‘The dead person’s heart was placed on a scale, balanced by the feather of Ma’at.’

Normally Ma’at is represented by an ostrich feather, however, in this case I’ve used crow feathers as they worked better with my overall image – note the small hieroglyph in the bottom right-hand corner.
