Chupicuaro Fertility Figurine (500-100 BC)
The oldest known culture in the West of Mexico is the Chupicuaro (named after the archaeological site in the Lima basin). Only a few ruins and stone utensils remained from the society. The many skulls and beheaded skeletons tell us that is was not a very peaceful society. However, the ceramic tradition of the Chupicuaro is one of the best known of Central America. Most of the famous three-colored pottery is found in graves. It consists of geometrically decorated vases and vessels in all forms, but also of animal and human figurines that are decorated in a similar way. Normally, female figurines are usually extremely broad-hipped, probably as a symbol of fertility. We know from related cultures that they are also associated with the fertility of the earth and the changing of the seasons.

Chupicuaro Fertility Statue reproduction is made from resin with hand painted color details to resemble terracotta pottery painting. Measures: 5.5"H x 4"W x 2.5"D.

Part of the Parastone Mouseion 3D Collection of museum replicas and cultural artifacts.
