The above listed item is from the Late Period,(715-332 B.C.E.). This "Canopic Jar" is clay cast with the head of Qebehsenuef (the Falcon), son of Horus and guardian of intestines. The four sons of Horus protected each Canopic jar. They were Duamutef, a jackal or dog who guarded the stomach, Hapy a baboon, who protected the lungs, Quebehsenuf, a falcon who protected the intestines, and Imsety, a human who guarded the liver. The jar has many hieroglyphics along with a kneeling priest, the gods Khnum, Anubis and a faintly visible cartouche. It is mainly intact and has age wear. The reason for the item being available is due to the vast extent of archeological findings, thousands of years in Egyptian burials and also the proliferation of these said items in older private collections worldwide.
