If I am ever lucky to visit Egypt, the site I'd most want to see is Seti I's temple at Abydos. He featured beautiful renderings of various deities, among them the Goddess Ma'at. No doubt this was partially influenced by his throne name "Men-Ma'at-Ra", "Eternal is the Truth/Justice of Ra".


I created a template from two different photos of Ma'at in Seti I's temple, one of her head and shoulders and one showing her torso - (both photos by "Mutnedjmet").


AI also created a version with lily columns
