Welcome to the canopic jars site !

The ancient egypt people use canopic jars as a part and as a ritual at the mummification process. The main purpose of canopic jars was to keep and preserve the viscera because they believed they will need this body parts after their death in the other world. All the viscera were not kept in a single canopic jar, but each organ was placed in a canopic jar of its own. There were four canopic jars displays in the tombs, each jar contained different human parts: liver, lungs, intestines and the stomach.
