Mummiform, hands appearing from the beaded shroud, wearing a tripartite wig with an usekh necklace, the legs painted with a column of hieroglyphs including his name.

One of the four sons of Horus, the human-headed god was the protector of the liver and his head was depicted on the corresponding canopic lid. Each jar was in turn protected by a goddess; Imsety was protected by his mother Isis. His role was to help revivify the corpse of the dead person; to literally lift them up as standing was equated with life and laying prone with death.
