Seller: ant1quity (473) 100%, Location: beccles, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 223296126618 VERY BEAUTIFUL- CIRCA 1500BCE -ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HORUS CANOPIC JAR WITH CARTOUCHE 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 Canopus. Each god was responsible for protecting a particular organ, and was himself protected by a companion goddess. They were: Hapy, the baboon-headed god representing the north, whose jar contained the lungs and was protected by the goddess Nephthys. Hapy is often used interchangeably with the god Hapi, though they are actually different gods. Duamutef, the jackal-headed god representing the east, whose jar contained the stomach and was protected by the goddess Neith Imsety, the human-headed god representing the south, whose jar contained the liver and was protected by the goddess Isis Qebehsenuef, the falcon-headed god representing the west, whose jar contained the intestines and was protected by the goddess Serqet.
