DUAMUTEF

Egyptian Stomach God

Also known as DUAMUTEF

A Horus Son with an interest in stomachs

One of the Sons of Horus Embalming Squad. This one looks after stomachs. These are kept in a jar until needed. Very useful in murder-by-poison police inquiries.

Like his brothers, Duamutef certainly has the stomach for his work.

You can’t miss him as he has a jackal’s head. Not in a jar — on his shoulders.
