What is this? Tell me.
That is a block statue made of granite. The figure is wearing a cloak with an opening at the neck, with his arms folded underneath the fabric. The subject is identified as "the son of Tita," although we don't know much about him today.
Why are they in forms of blocks?
Great question! You will see many of the statues in the museum are in the same 'poses' like the block statue, a kneeling pose, a seated pose. The block statue specifically shows a male, non-royal figure, seated with his knees up and arms folded. The figure is usually shown wrapped in a cloak on which inscriptions were often carved.
