Canopic Jars were used to store and preserve human organs for safekeeping in the afterlife. During the mumification process organs were removed and stored into the jars and were buried in the tomb together with the sarcophagus of the dead.
Each Jar held a particular organ; the intestines were stored within the falcon, the liver in the human headed jar, the stomach was stored in Anubis, and the lungs were contained within the baboon.
