Imsety (a male headed god) guarded the liver. Qebehsenuef, (a falcon-headed god) held the intestines. Hapy (a baboon-headed god) looked after the lungs. Duamutef (a jackal-headed god) guarded the stomach. The heart remained in the body as it was believed to be important in a ceremony that took place in the afterlife.
