They were expected to act with honor and truth in manners that involve family, the community, the nation, the environment, and the gods.Maat as a principle was formed to meet the complex needs of the emergent Egyptian state that embraced diverse peoples with conflicting interests.The development of such rules sought to avert chaos and it became the basis of Egyptian law. From an early period the King would describe himself as the "Lord of Maat" who decreed with his mouth the Maat he conceived in his heart.The significance of Maat developed to the point that it embraced all aspects of existence, including the basic equilibrium of the universe, the relationship between constituent parts, the cycle of the seasons, heavenly movements, religious observations and fair dealings, honesty and truthfulness in social interactions.The ancient Egyptians had a deep conviction of an underlying holiness and unity within the universe. Cosmic harmony was achieved by correct public and ritual life. Any disturbance in cosmic harmony could have consequences for the individual as well as the state. An impious King could bring about famine or blasphemy blindness to an individual. In opposition to the right order expressed in the concept of Maat is the concept of Isfet: chaos, lies and violence.In addition to the importance of the Maat, several other principles within ancient Egyptian law were essential, including an adherence to tradition as opposed to change, the importance of rhetorical skill, and the significance of achieving impartiality and "righteous action". text the Creator declares "I made every man like his fellow". Maat called the rich to help the less fortunate rather than exploit them, echoed in tomb declarations: "I have given bread to the hungry and clothed the naked" and "I was a husband to the widow and father to the orphan".To the Egyptian mind, Maat bound all things together in an indestructible unity: the universe, the natural world, the state, and the individual Shipping : 7 to 12 days by DHL express with track number and Ebay support..Combined package : save your money For example (shipping cost for biggest item + half shipping cost of second item + half shipping cost of third item + Quarter shipping cost of fourth item + Quarter shipping cost of fifth + free shipping for any item more .)Duties and responsibilities : Your responsibility is the payment and the fair feedback,,and our responsibility is to receive your item as the picture exactly and the material as description exactly,, Therefore we recommend that you see the picture well and then take your decision and take your responsibility..Thank you and appreciate your time.......
