This Small Set of Four Canopic Jars includes Horus, Sekhmet, Human, and Anubis. Body parts of the deceased in Egyptian times were protected by the four gods known as the Sons of Horus. They were the guardians of the internal organs, also linked to the four cardinal points. Ancient Egyptian canopic jars were fashioned with a carved statue head of the god for the top over a base jar where the internal organs were stored in a tomb.
