Shay was the personification of the concept of fate or destiny in ancient Egypt. His name means "that which is ordained" but is also related to the word "shay" meaning "extent" or "amount". Although genrally "fate" was deemed to be male, there was also a female version of this god known as "shait".
The egyptians believed that Shai determined the length of each persons life and was born with each person at their birth and remained at their side until they faced their final judgement before Asar in the underworld (the duat). He was an ambivalent deity who could protect or damn a person as he offered a true account of each life in the Hall of Judgement. Even the gods and the pharaohs were in the hands of fate.

I found your art by typing in the word "Moor" and it looks like yours is the only one that seems to be true Moor.
