The majority of these statuettes were found in the antechamber of Psusennes I, but Montet also found some in tomb IV (original tomb of Amenemope).

These figures, both overseers and workers, were crudely fashioned - the faces hardly sculpted at all. Both overseers and workers all having the appearance of females.

A total of 29 overseers and 345 workers.
