Imagine the ritual of mummification in Egypt over 3000 years ago.

Accompanying the mummified body where a set of four Canopic Jars, each containing one of four major organs thought to preserve them for the owner in the afterlife. The lids of the jars were sculpted after the four sons of Horus to protect the contents. The four sons where Imsety (human), Duamutef (jackal), Hapi (baboon) & Qebehsenuef (hawk).

This terracotta jar & lid features a beautifully sculpted and detailed human head, Imsety and was meant to hold the liver. The jars surface includes remnants of hieroglyphs and features polychrome pigments on the surface.

The lid and jar are not an original set and are thought to have one dynasty of age between them but fit very well together. With a magnificent patina and age appropriate ware this piece has an absolutely humbling aura to it.

The uneven bottom of the vase has been made level using felt pads.
