The jar has many hieroglyphics along with a kneeling priest, the gods Khnum, Anubis and a faintly visible cartouche. It is mainly intact and has age wear.

Canopic jars were used during the mummification process. Organs were removed from the body and were placed into four separate jars. The organs were first washed in a wine-like substance for preservation. Each jar was protected by its own deity who were the four son of Horus. Hapy(Baboon) for the lungs, Duamutef(Jackal) for the stomach, Imsety(Human) for the liver and Kebehsenuef(Hawk) for the intestines. In ancient Egypt it was believed, that if you stole a canopic jar and had its contents, you were able to cast evil magical spells. This listed item is of the deity Duamutef who protected the stomach organ. He was depicted as a man or a mummy with a jackal's head and a relative nephew to the god Anubis. Thankfully someone else has already used its contents! It's intact, made of clay, has some visible hieroglyphics, has some surface age wear and traces of original glaze. A very lovely piece of funerary art.
