Title
Small seated enthroned figure.
Description
Human figurines have been handmade at Teotihuacán since 150 BC. Around AD 250, the Teotihuacanos began mass-producing figures using molds. The figurines are not found in burials or temple complexes. The thousands that have been found in residential middens and fills suggest they were important in daily household rituals at the 2000 apartment complexes.
