In The Mummy movie franchise these Egyptian Canopic Jars housed the preserved organs of Anck-Su-Namun, High Priest Imhotep's lover who he wants to resurrect.

In the movies there were five jars featured, whilst apparently in real-life there were only four types of jars and no lion-headed ones. I can certainly forgive any factual inaccuracies, as it is a fun fantasy movie after all.
