Since the heart was thought to embody the soul, it was left inside the body The brain was thought only to be the origin of mucus, so it was reduced to liquid, removed with metal hooks, and discarded. This left the stomach (and small intestines), liver, large intestines, and lungs, which were removed, embalmed and stored, each organ in its own jar. There were times when embalmers deviated from this scheme: during the 21st Dynasty they embalmed and wrapped the viscera and returned them to the body, while the Canopic jars remained empty symbols. Canopic Jars: used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife. They were commonly either carved from limestone or were made of pottery. These jars were used by the ancient Egyptians from the time of the Old Kingdom until the time of the Late Period or the Ptolemaic Period, by which time the viscera were simply wrapped and placed with the body. The viscera were not kept in a single canopic jar: each jar was reserved for specific organs. The name "canopic" reflects the mistaken association by early Egyptologists with the Greek legend of CanopusItem Information:Height: 12.2 cm / 4.80 inchWidth : 16 cm / 6.29 inch Length: 6 cm / 2.36 inchMaterial: Stone in Luxor EgyptObject: Egyptian StatueColor: As Shown in the PictureOrigin: EgyptCondition: Original ConditionShipping: DHL fast Shipping 4-12 days with track number - We Only Depend on the EXPRESS SHIPPINGItems Will Be Sent Out in 72 Hours After Your Payment Receiving.We Offer Combined shipping deals.Payment:We Accept Paypal Only Feedback:Customer Satisfaction our main objective and we are always looking for the positive feedback from your respectful side.In case of dissatisfaction you are kindly requested to return the item with same condition to be replaced or refund the total payment.
