These two adjoining blocks depict stonemasons and laborers constructing one of Amunhotep IV's shrines to the Aten at Karnak. At the lower left is a figure carrying either a bag or a sandstone block, called a talatat, to the construction site. Above him, three other workmen walk on a wooden beam separating the unfinished walls. The group of men in the lower right may be listening to instructions from an unseen overseer.
