Canopic Jars like these were used by the Ancient Egyptians during the mummification process and each jar contained a specific organ which were placed inside a chest. The jar with the jackal-headed god 'Duamatef' was meant for the stomach, whilst the baboon-headed jar of the god 'Hapi' held the lungs.

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.
