The balance corresponds to an Egyptian deity Ma’at. In Egyptian myth the dead were judged by Anubis. He used a feather, which was the representation of Ma’at, the Goddess of truth and justice responsible for maintaining order in the universe. The heart was the seat of the life-spirit. Hearts heavier or lighter than the feather of Ma’at were rejected and eaten by Ammit, the Devourer of Souls.
As it was known to the Babylonians as the scales – which were held sacred to the sun god Shamash, who was also the patron of truth and justice – we can assume that this tradition is very old. Today, we recognise this image as we use it to represent justice.

The key traits for a Libra personality type is said to be the qualities of balance, harmony and diplomacy. The constellation itself is also in the shape of a pair of scales.

This painting is also available as a limited edition art print
