LOT 1405
An Egyptian terracotta canopic jar cover, probably New Kingdom (1550-1069BC), depicting Imsety, with traces of pigment, height approx 9cm.

Each of the four jars had the head of a different god, known as the 'Four Sons of Horus': Imsety, with the human head, who looked after the liver, Qebhsenuef, with the head of a falcon (intestines), Duamutef, with the head of a jackal (stomach), and Hapy, with the head of a baboon (lungs).
