Description

This is the first picture from the Tutankhamen series.

I knew one woman that was always leaving through the window
There were tons of doors, but she chose the window
She crashed every time, but she didn’t care, you know

This piece is bigger than the first five. It sounds surreal, but the meaning is quite transparent if the woman is Maat, Egyptian goddess. According to mythology, Maat was created when Ra (the god of the son) arose from the waters of Nun (chaos). She was more than just a goddess. Her presence laid down the concept of the universe as an ordered and balanced world, which helped the ancient Egyptians develop a strong sense of morality, truth and justice. She was depicted with an ostrich feather on her head (which was used on the scale of justice) and long wings.  

And the fact that Maat had wings explains why she appeared every day and chose a window to leave. And here are the symbols from Gustav Klimt paintings: the naked truth, Maat and the Golden Knight – well-armed strong one, to take up the struggle for happiness, impelled by motives of compassion and ambition. All they together are winning over crimes and bad choices and nothing can kill the truth and justice.
