Justice Tarot card

The Justice card is about truth, self-honesty and self-examination. I chose to represent these concepts by going into Egyptian mythology and showing the feather of Ma'at. When a person passed on, their heart would be placed onto a golden scale and balanced against the feather of Ma'at (the feather of truth). If the heart was found to be equal or lighter than the feather, the person had lived a truthful life, and would pass on to paradise. If the person failed, their heart would be devoured by the demon Ammitt.
