Organs Removed - Cutting Them Outt
Canopic jars are used for storing the organs. Each jar is protected by one of the four sons of the god Horus and the lid of each jar is in the shape of its protector god's head.

The canopic jars are placed in a specially made box called a canopic cheast. This will be stored in your tomb and should be placed as near to you as possible.
