Qebehsennuf was one of the "Four Sons of Horus" and his only duty was to protect the entrails of the dead and store them in his canopy jar after that the body had been mummified. His brothers were: Hapy, Duamentef and Amsit and the intestines were guarded by Qebehsennuf. With time (beginning in the New Kingdom) the jars that originally were made of clay with simple stoppers of mud, became artful stone sculptures showing the protectors themselves. Craftsmen made jars of alabaster and other materials, decorated the sides and sculptured out the image of god's head in the top. He was depicted as a mummy with the head of a falcon and his work was under constant protection of the goddess Selket. Main text.
