The Ancient Egyptians would use Canopic Jars during the ritual process of mummification. They would mummify the bodies and also their internal organs which would be placed within these jars. They strongly believed that by doing this process they would be reborn into an afterlife. These Canopic Jars would be buried with their mummified bodies.
The Jars each have an individual design and are picked at random, so the jar will vary from the picture shown.
