Figures

Carefully fashioned terracotta and chiseled stone pieces tell the stories of shamans, priests, kings, warriors, workers, servants, mothers, and friends. Self-representation and representation of a society through three-dimensional figures has been important in so many cultures. At Muzeion, you will find such figures from China, India, Mexico, and Peru, each of them with a story, each with a window into the past with a view for how life was lived.
