Manufacturer Description

Canopic jars were used in the mummification process.  The removed body parts were cleaned and mummified then placed into four special jars called canopic jars. Each canopic jar had a lid with the head of a god. Imsety (a male headed god) guarded the liver. Qebehsenuef (a falcon-headed god) held the intestines. Hapy (a baboon-headed god) looked after the lungs and Duamutef (a jackal-headed god) guarded the stomach. The heart remained in the body as it was believed to be important in a ceremony that took place in the afterlife.
