Ancient Egyptian canopic jar depicting the baboon Hapi, circa 525 BC, end of 26th dynasty, alabastre Louvre Museum N 2969 or CC88. Monkey headed Hapi. Inscribed to Horiraa (director of the portal); Hapi and Nephthys. Height 40cm.

Hapi, the baboon-headed god representing the North, whose jar contained the lungs and was protected by the goddess Nephthys. Hapi is often used interchangeably with the Nile god Hapi, though they are actually different gods.

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. .
