Context: The earliest Teotihuacan figurines are hand modeled, while later specimens were produced with molds. This exceptionally large example has a mold-made head, with facial features carefully retouched by hand. Earthenware figurines were made in great abundance throughout Teotihuacan's history, and may have been used in household religious rituals.
