: 'Talatat', one of the standard size building blocks used for temple building in the Amarna period. Carved in sunk relief with part of a bigger picture, this block shows the head and torso of two young men carrying offerings, part of a procession of offering-bearers: one holds a larg tray piled with pastries. Both men have the elongated head and features typical of the Amarna style. The stone is yellow-buff and no paint remains.
