One of the oldest in Mesoamerica, the Chupícuaro ceramic tradition includes figurines of diminutive ladies as well as vessels in a great variety of shapes, including unusual forms such as the stirrup-spout. Chupicuaro's influence in the Valley of México is evidenced by large amounts of petite and highly adorned figurines as well as numerous polychrome vessels. This lovely Chupicuaro lady wears an elaborate coiffure, large ear plugs, and a beaded jade necklace, all of which were typical for Chupicuaro nobility.  Archaeologists are unsure of what these miniature figures were used for but the fact that they are found throughout the Valley of Mexico indicates that they were an important symbol for the region. Scholars suggest that they represent a fertility goddess or a young woman in the prime of her life.
