Scribe's Canopic JarYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This jar dates from the Nineteenth Dynasty and is made of calcite pigment and gilt. This canopic jar belonged to a scribe in a treasury in ancient Egypt. A canopic jar was intended for the ritual placement and storage of the mummified organs of the deceased individual. Kneeling on the front of this canopic jar is its owner. He is wearing an elaborate kilt. As a rule, the more elaborate the kilt, the higher the status of the owner of the canopic jar. There is some color remaining in his figure – the reddish-brown that was traditionally used for the men of ancient Egypt. Roughened areas on stone sculptures like those that can be seen on this jar were meant to hold gilding to make it stick better. Some traces of this gilding on the lines on the headdress are on the lid of the jar and also still clinging to the corners of the mouth on the lid of the canopic jar.
Date: 1549-1069 BCE
