RoseArt colored pencils. Typography, Corel Painter. Inspired by Egyptian mythology. An homage to truth.

I’ve heard it said that truth hurts. I don’t happen to believe that.

In ancient Egyptian lore Ma’at (ma’ yat) was the Goddess of truth, justice and reality. She was depicted in hieroglyphics wearing a crown adorned with a single ostrich feather. Ma’at symbolized the balance between the contrasts in Egyptian life; between Upper and Lower Egypt, between the fertile Nile valley and the desert, and between good and evil. She was the basis of Egyptian civilization and Egyptian strength. Ma’at was said to reign when the kingdom was unified and when men were peaceful and content with their lot, performing their duties of righteous conduct as laid down in the divine order. The gods themselves lived by Ma’at for without Ma’at creation could not be sustained and the divine design was thwarted.
