Description Sculptor's models were used in the workshops of craftsmen for training and demonstration purposes. This two-dimensional model, executed in raised relief, displays a vulture. The image represents the hieroglyphic script sign "aleph" (which does not exist in the English alphabet), and was a model for large-scale temple inscriptions.
