Brown limestone jackal-headed Duamutef, one of the four sons of Horus. During mummification, it is first attested in the burial of Hetepheres, Mother of the 4th dynasty ruler, Khufu (2589-2566 BC), at Giza. Her viscera were stored in a travertine (Egyptian alabaster) chest divided into four compartments, three of which contained the remains of her organs in natron while the fourth held a dry organic material. In later burials, specific elements of the viscera were placed under the protection of four anthropomorphic genii known as the sons of Horus who were, themselves, protected by tutelary deities guarding the four cardinal points. The jackal-headed Duamutef, linked with Neith and the east, guarded the stomach. 18th Dynasty.
1570 - 1342 BC
