Merit Award : Egyptian
The Trexi symbolize the Egyptian woman. Her hat and snake symbolize her power. Her eyes are black and she covers her mouth, like most women in Ancient Egypt. The pictures on the Treix’s body describe what the Egyptians believe about the judgment of the dead. The gods will take the dead person’s heart and put it on a balance, comparing the heart with a feather plume. If the heart is heavier than the plume, an alligator-god will eat the heart.
