mythology, Duamutef (also known as Tuamutef)
was one of the Four
sons of Horus and a funerary god who
protected the stomach and large intestines
of mummified corpses, kept in a canopic
jar. He was associated with the jackal and
was protected by the goddess Neith.
Duamutef is represented as a mummified man
with the head of a jackal. His name is generally
realised as Duamutef, and probably means
'Adoring His Mother'.
