Canopic Jars Of Djedbastetiuefankh. Dynasty, about 380-343 BCE. Hawara, Egypt
Limestone. Once removed from the chest and abdomen, the organs were embalmed separately and placed in canopic jars. There were usually four organ bundles, each one protected by one of the four Sons of Horus. The canopic jars shown here belong to a man called Djedbastetiuefankh and were found in his tomb.
