Duamutef
 
In Egyptian 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'.
