  • This set of tiny canopic jars (each just under three inches tall) has a surprisingly authentic look and feel. The lid is removable and they could be used as storage for small items. Canopic jars were used by the Ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve internal organs for the afterlife. The canopic jars were placed inside a canopic chest and buried in tombs together with the sarcophagus of the dead. It was believed the dead person would need their organs for the afterlife. Each god was responsible for protecting a particular organ, and were themselves protected by companion goddesses from harm. They were: * Duamutef, the jackal-headed god representing the east, whose jar contained the stomach and was protected by the goddess Neith. * Qebehsenuef, the falcon-headed god representing the west, whose jar contained the intestines and was protected by the goddess Selket. * Hapi, the baboon-headed god representing the north, whose jar contained the lungs and was protected by the goddess Nephthys. * Imseti, the human-headed god representing the south, whose jar contained the liver and was protected by the goddess Isis.
