The four sons of Horus are four of the cosmic powers (nitro) that were associated with both Horus and Osiris and had a major role in the transition of man upon death from the material world to the other world.

The four sons of Horus appeared in the famous trial scene, and the ancient Egyptian artist portrayed them as they were standing on a lotus flower that grew from the water under the throne of Osiris in the other world.
And since the lotus flower, according to the ancient Egyptians, was associated with the creation of the universe, the four sons of Horus are also part of the system of the creation of the universe.
The Belgian engineer, Robert Boval, says that the four sons of Horus are the four stars that make up the cavity that resembles the ladle in the Big Dipper group, and that the star group occupied great importance among the ancient Egyptians.

The tool used in the ritual of opening the mouth was an iron tool in the shape of the Big Dipper group.
Horus was the first to perform the ritual of opening the mouth and performed it for his father Osiris using the Big Dipper group, a ritual related to changing human consciousness to qualify for life in another world completely different from what he is used to on earth.
The Great Bear group was mentioned in the texts of the pyramids as one of the stations that the soul passes through on its journey to the other world.
The four sons of Horus were also associated with the human bowels.
When the mummy was mummified in ancient Egypt, the bowels of the deceased were taken out and placed in four pots called canopic pots. Each pot carries the head of one of the four sons of Horus and guards one of the human guts. It also guards the gate to one of the four original sides.

The names of the four sons of Horus are:
Dwamotif: He carries the head of a jackal and guards the stomach and stands at the northern gate
Kabeh-Sunuf: He carries a falcon's head and guards the bowels and stands at the southern gate
Hapi: He carries the head of a baboon, guards the lungs, and stands at the eastern gate
Amsit: He carries a human head and guards the liver and stands at the western gate
