UAMUTEF - Lid

Damn!” Jacques says aloud catching a detail that is indeed a grave error in his estimation. During the transport of the Canopic Jars the ornate lids had been removed and packed separately as a logical precaution against breakage.

The person placing the lids on the respective jars in this exhibition mistakenly placed, in the four terra cotta series, Qebehsenuef, the hawk’s head, on the jar of Daumutef the jackal and visa versa.
The error could be read from the hieroglyphs written on the jars.

He suddenly remembered that Todd had made exactly the same mistake in his drawing of this particular jar realising the mistake
has come from a member of their own team back in Egypt two
years ago. Negligence had switched the lids, most probably during photography where the photographer could not read the Egyptian symbols.
