THE FIGURINES OF MOTUL DE SAN JOSÉ: PRODUCTION AND REPRESENTATION
With a variety of forms, figurines had a variety of functions whether they were domestic, funerary or ritual.
The figurines represent characters from different social levels, as well as deities and animals. Often we can find richly attired women and noble men with headdresses and jewelry, although we can also find scribes, dwarves, warriors, dancers, children, ball players, captives and even drunkards.
In reality, they represent a range of human activities and occupations that also reflect social relationships. These were not limited to a social rank, although it is assumed that the finest and best detailed figurines in décor and manufacture belonged to the upper classes.
All of them wear ornaments and attire characteristic to their rank, as well as hairstyles, jewelry, and even facial decoration designs produced by scars produced in a similar way that tattoos are marked on the skin.
