"Cooling his brother (with water)" One of the "Four Sons of Heru" depicted in funerary literature as protecting the throne of Wesir in the Underworld, Qebshenef is depicted as a hawk-headed mummified human on funerary furniture and especially the "canopic" jars which held the organs of the deceased (Qebshenef's jar held the intestines). Later Hermetic philosophers would equate Qebshenef with the element of fire because of his association with the funerary protectress Serqet and the direction of south.
