This is EC494, a fragment of cartonnage showing the deity Qebehsenuef. His name can be seen above him. Qebehsenuef was one of the Four Sons of Horus. Their role was to protect the innards removed during mummification. The four canopic jars used in mummification each had one of the heads of the Four Sons of Horus. Qebehsenuef protected the intestines.
