Horus the Elder has four sons by an unnamed goddess, and it is their likenesses that appear on the lids of the canopic jars used to contain the internal organs removed from a body during the process of mummification.

QUEBEHSENUEF is a hawk and protects the large intestines. He is guarded by Selket. Of the other organs, the heart was considered the seat of the soul and was left in place and mummified with the body, and the brain was thought to only produce mucus and was therefore worthless, so it was removed and discarded. He is one of the four sons of Horus.
