Ancient Egyptian Antique Statue Set Of 4 Canopic Jars Egypt Granit Stone Bc
ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUES STATUE SET OF 4 CANOPIC JARS CARVED EGYPT GRANIT STONE. CANOPIC JARS Also Known as Jars of the Old Kingdom Were the Containers Used to Hold the Internal Organs That Were Removed from the Dead Body Before Mummification. During the Old Kingdom, When Mummification Was in Its Infancy, the Jars That Served This Purpose Were Stone Vessels with a Plain Lid. It Was Not Until the First Intermediate Period That the Jars Acquired a Different Human-Headed Stopper. From This Time, Too, the Packages of Viscera Placed Inside Them Were Sometimes Decorated with Human-Faced Masks. Then, from the Nineteenth Dynasty Onwards, the Stoppers of the Jars Were Each Shaped Like the Head of One of the Minor Funerary Deities Known as the Four Sons of Horus Depending on Which Organ It Contained.
