You are viewing three Terra-Cotta figurine replicas usually fitted with a whistle or with clay pellets producing a rattle like sound. They are molded or cast in Terra-Cotta. Originally they were painted, as you can see, mostly in ochers and blues. Details such as scarification and other marks on the face as well as clothing and jewelry signify social status of the figure. These pieces give us a glimpse into the physical features, dress and daily life of the late classic Mayan culture. A three-dimensional snapshot of an age now lost to us though in some ways still with us..... Beautiful.......
