This is a model of a canopic jar with a lid in the shape of Hapy.
It is from Thebes. Hapy is one of the four sons of Horus and was the guardian of the lungs. This object is solid, although it does have an incised line around its neck to make it look like a real canopic jar and lid. Dummy canopic jars were made for burials at a time when the organs were bandaged in with the body. The rituals of burial required a set of canopic jars, however, and so solid dummies were made. This one is dated to the Ptolemaic Period, but is probably from the 21st to 25th Dynasties, between 3,000 and 2,600 years ago. This is a model of a canopic jar with a lid in the shape of Hapy. It is made from limestone. It is over 2000 years old, dating to the Ptolemaic Period, 332-30 BCE, or earlier.
