Ancient Egypt, 1550-1070 B.C. Marble.

The ancient Egyptians believed in the beyond, in eternal life. This believe made them keep their bodies in an artificial way to reuse them in the beyond.

When an Egyptian died, he was subjected to embalmment, process by which he would become a Mummy. In the first treatment the body would be cleaned and organs would be extracted by an incision on the left side.

Then they would proceed to the de-watering of the body with natron. Process in which organs were also dried. When the body was finally dry and organs preserved, the body would be cleaned and bandaged, by applying ointments and doing magical rituals.
Canopen glasses represented the four children of the God Horus, each one of them having assigned a specific organ.

Qebehsenuef, with a hawk head represents the West and it is intended to contain the intestine.
