The canopic jars were an integral part of the funerary rituals in ancient Egypt, they were used during the mummification process to keep the embalmed viscera or vital organs such as the heart which will be used in the judgment by Gods in the afterlife. The Canopic jars started to appear in the Old Kingdom when they were still plain, then started to become decorated and the lids took the shape of the sons of the God Horus; a Jackal head, A human head, a Falcon Head and a baboon head. They were usually made of pottery or stone or other material and could be found commonly in royal tombs and burial chambers.
