Description
None of [of the figures] have preserved us in their original state, they have become almost all victims of the termites, which they completely hollowed out on the inside and whose excrement hardened on the outer surface, so that these now form the outer contours. In other cases, the moisture and salinity of the soil have done their part to make the wood brittle or to destroy it entirely.

The shaft 684 also contained peasant women with the wooden basket, which, as in later times, was separated by lines was marked as wattle.
There were also remnants of a crouching figure with a fan in one hand.
