Gold Egyptian Canopic Jar Qebehsenuef (hawk head).
The canopic jars were four in number, each for the safekeeping of particular human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver, all of which, it was believed, would be needed in the afterlife.
There was no jar for the heart: the Egyptians believed it to be the seat of the soul, and so it was left inside the body.
Dimensions: Height 12cm.
