The size of the pharaoh’s statue was more than normal and sometimes weighs several tons. The TMATHILALKTBH and the court staff were almost normal in size.
The statues of the servants and workers were, despite their high accuracy, smaller in size; usually not more than 50 cm in height.
Those statues have shown the servant in different working modes. This is in addition to the very small statues of the Shohabas, which are only a few centimeters high.
