Made in Egypt Set of 4 Canopic Jars

Made in Egypt Set of 4 Canopic Jars
King Tut, Made in Egypt,Set of Four 2.5" Canopic Jars.These jars were used by the Ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife.These jars were used by Ancient Egyptians from the time of the Old Kingdom up until the time of the Late Period or the Ptolemaic Period, by which time the viscera were simply wrapped and placed with the body.The viscera were not kept in a single canopic jar: each jar was reserved for specific organs. The name "canopic" reflects the mistaken association by early Egyptologists with the Greek legend of Canopus.
