Phakth is the Nehekharan God of the Sky and Justice. Depicted as a muscular man with a hawk's head, he can also appear as a large, blue-banded hawk with golden eyes. In either form, his piercing gaze is said to be able to see the sins of the deceased.[1a][2a]
In Nehekharan tradition, the recently deceased travels to the Hall of the Dead, where Phakth weighs his soul. The scales show the soul's merit, and that determines whether the person can move on to the next stage of spiritual growth or must go back and begin again.[2b]
