In depictions she was imaged with a ostrich feather on her head and a Anch in the hand, the attribute of gods, the cross of life.
A special meaning had the feather. When a human died, his Ka came into the empire of death. It had to made his way with many obstacles to the judgement of the death, wirer it was put into a scalepan and weighed in comparison to the feather of goddess Maat. The god Anubis examined and Thot told the result the god of the underworld, Osiris. Was the heart too heavy, it was a sign that the dead person had lived not true to Maat's standard during life and had to die a second death - a horrible idea for humans of today.
A light heart was liked by Osiris and the dead person could live with the gods.
