This canopic jar with a lid in the shape of a royal woman's head was found in an Egyptian pyramid. It is intracately carved and made of travertine(limestone), blue glass, and obsidian. It is believed to have been crafted during Akhenaten's reign, and the face on the lid has not yet been paired with a name. This artifact can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
