Form A Egyptian Canopic Jars

Building on their ancient civilizations studies, Form A art students created replicas of ancient Egyptian canopic jars in Sean Nolan’s Lower School art studio. Using recycled 2-liter soda bottles, cardboard armatures, tape, and plaster, the boys based their designs on one of the four sons of the Egyptian god Horus: Hapy (baboon), Imsety (human), Duamutef (jackal), and Qebehsenuef (falcon). Students then studied the wide variety of designs and styles of canopic jars and created their own designs using acrylic paint. Once completed, they used felt fabric to sew stuffed versions of the internal organs traditionally placed inside canopic jars during the mummification process.  FormA-CanopicJars
