Canopic Jars of the Lady of Amun House

 Four well-preserved, limestone canopic jars that belonged to the Lady of the House and Chantress of Amun called Rewedj-ta-en-tay, from the New Kingdom or later. The heads (human, baboon, jackal and falcon) show few details, but are finely carved and polished. The heads represent four deities known as the four sons of Horus.

 These were: Imsety, human-headed deity who protected the liver of the deceased; Hapy, baboon-faced deity who protected the lungs; Duamutef, jackal-faced deity who protected the stomach; and Qebehsenuef, falcon-headed deity who protected the intestines. The texts inscribed on the jars beg each of the four sons of Horus to grant offerings to the lady owner of the jars.
