Canopic Jar – Imsety

£5.25

Canopic jars were used in the mummification process to contain the internal organs of the body.  A different jar was used for each type of organ. The heart was left in the body as it was believed to be weighed in the afterlife to determine whether the person had lived a good life.

Imsety (human head) protected the liver. Qebehsenuf (falcon head) guarded the intestines.  Hapy (baboon head) protected the lungs. Duamatef (jackal head) guarded the stomach. The jars were then placed in a special casket. Canopic jar with the Imsety head lid
