Ancient Egyptian canopic jar of Amon Padiouf depicting the jackel headed Duamutef, 1079-664 BC, wood, Louvre Museum. Inv N2952D. Dog's head of Douamoutef. Inscribed to Padiouf (father of the god of Amun, priest-ouâb initiated in Karnak, carpenter of the king in the domain of Amun);

Duamutef, the jackal-headed god representing the East, whose jar contained the stomach and was protected by the goddess Neith Duamutef was, in ancient Egyptian religion, one of the four sons of Horus and a protection god of the canopic jars.[2] Commonly he is said to be the son of the god Horus the Elder. Another myth describes Duamutef and his brothers as sons of Osiris.

Canopic jars were used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife. The canopic jars were four in number, each for the safekeeping of particular human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver, all of which, it was believed, would be needed in the afterlife. .
