This custom museum display showcases an absolute masterpiece, an Authentic Faience Glazed Porcelain 'God Happy sitting on a Heart Scarab' Tomb Statue Ornament, dating from The Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C.
Happy is one of the four sons of Horus. The Sons of Horus were also The Gods Of The Cardinal Compass Points. Each God was responsible for protecting a particular organ during the mummification process and was himself protected by a companion Goddess.
-Happy, The Baboon-Headed God representing the North, who protected the lungs and was protected by The Goddess Nephthys. Happy Is often used interchangeably with the God Hapi, though they are actually different Gods.
-Duamutef, The Jackal-Headed God representing the East, who protected the stomach and was protected by The Goddess Neith-Imsety, The Human-Headed God representing the South, who protected the liver and was protected by The Goddess Isis.
-Qebehsenuef, The Falcon-Headed God representing the West, who protected the intestines and was protected by The Goddess Serqet.
