    Pen and watercolour drawing on paper. The drawing shows the figures of four Egyptian gods. They are the gods known as the four sons of Horus: Qebehsenuf, Duamutef, Amset, and Hapi. The figures shown in the drawing were found with the embalmed organs of the mummy found in the mummy case shown in LDSAL2020.19.90 and LDSAL2020.19.91.

    The mummy case was brought from Egypt to Jersey by John Gosset in 1835. This is one of four drawings of the mummy case and its contents in the Society's 'Eastern Antiquities' album. The others are
    LDSAL2020.19.90, LDSAL2020.19.91, and LDSAL2020.19.101.

    A handwritten inscription on the drawing reads:
    Kebhnsnof Smof Amset Hapée

    Found inclosed within the 4 bandaged portions containing the Viscera of the mummy of Pet-maut-iohmes.
    Sept. 1837.
