Canopic jars of the Old Kingdom were rarely inscribed, and had a plain lid. In the Middle Kingdom inscriptions became more usual, and the lids were often in the form of human heads. By the Nineteenth dynasty each of the four lids depicted one of the four sons ofHorus, as guardians of the organs. The canopic jars were four in number, each for the safekeeping of particular human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver, all of which, it was believed, would be needed in the afterlife. There was no jar for the heart: the Egyptians believed it to be the seat of the soul, and so it was left inside the body As it shows from front with heiroglyphic story of dead person that he was living in peace during his life doing good things and hope god protect him after life and take him to heaven also you can see cobra is sculptured on jar to protect it and protect the liver Many sets of jars survive from this period, in alabaster, aragonite, calcareous stone, and blue or green glazed porcelain and green hammer stone The sons of Horus were also the gods of the cardinal compass points.
