Devotional statuette(s).

The statuettes sitting on patios are cubic human figures and the heads have been more carefully processed in comparison with bodies. In Timna, an ancient city in Yemen, many devotional statuettes similar to these statuettes were found in the sacred place in the cemetery. Therefore, it is thought that these should also be devotional statuettes. They are dated to circa 4th-1st centuries BC.
