THE FOUR SONS OF HORUS:
Horus the Elder has four sons by an unnamed goddess, and it
is their likenesses that appear on the lids of the canopic
jars used to contain the internal organs removed from a body
during the process of mummification.
QUEBEHSENUEF is a hawk and
protects the large intestines. He is guarded by Selket. Of
the other organs, the heart was considered the seat of the
soul and was left in place and mummified with the body, and
the brain was thought to only produce mucus and was therefore
worthless, so it was removed and discarded. He is one of the
four sons of Horus.
