Canopic Jars

Egyptian Containers for Mummification

Canopic jars were used by the Ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife.

The jars were four in number, each charged with the safekeeping of particular human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver. They were placed inside a canopic chest and buried in tombs together with the sarcophagus of the dead. It was also done because it was believed the dead person would need their organs to help them through the after life.
