Canopic jar with Human head

This funerary jar in alabaster is part of a collection of four canopic jars of which the provenance is not known.  Of slightly cylindrical form, it is equipped with a lid in the form of a human head. The eyes, the ears, the nose and the mouth are very refined. The piece, which is in a very good state of preservation, probably dates from the Ramesside Period.
