Hollow figure has vent holes on the sides, as well has holes to the ears. 7lbs The cuchimilco figures are unglazed terracotta figurines, created between 1200 and 1450 AD by the Chancay Culture which developed in the latter part of the Inca Empire. Ceramic guardian figures were important in Chancay culture. They normally come in pairs of male and female figures, with stocky, almost triangular shaped bodies and upraised arms. The figures are similar but have different painted decoration to indicate gender differences in dress. The exact function of these figures is unknown, but it is thought that they may have acted as guardians to the tombs of the Chancay people, or as companions in the afterlife. Approx.
