Canopic jars were containers specifically designed to hold and protect the organs of the deceased. They were often made of stone or pottery and had lids shaped like the heads of four protective deities called the Four Sons of Horus. The organs were placed in these jars and buried alongside the mummified body to ensure the deceased's well-being in the afterlife.
