Model Type
Breasted -- 2. Chicago, Oriental Institute, 11494 (Pl. 9d). Intermediate period. The six figures are badly out of scale with the building: a seated clerk records each sack of grain as it is dumped into the bin. Two standing figures are dumping sacks of grain; another figure leans over a container. Two standing figures are opposite the clerk; one of these held a set of model tools in his hand.
